British art: artist Richard Adams

'The Summer Wore On' by Richard Adams

'The Summer Wore On' by Richard Adams

Today we feature British Artist Richard Adams

Richard Adams was born in Hampshire in 1960. He received a BA Hons in Graphic Design at Leicester Polytechnic. Richard’s childhood was spent amidst the British countryside in the south Cotswolds. The outstanding Cotswold landscape has had a strong and lasting influence on his art work with the soft landscape and architectural vernacular often inspiring and influencing his paintings.

In his art work Richard Adams creates a dream world often adding ‘odd’ people that seem to float above the ground and seldom stand upright. Full of humour Richard Adams paintings and prints are beautifully drawn and highly imaginative.

All Richard’s paintings are produced using chalk pastel. They are then fixed and soaked in a special varnish that leaves an impervious surface. His art works are also available as Giclee Limited Edition Prints

Today’s featured image is a Limited Edition Print ’The Summer Wore On’ is an imaginative and idealised portrayal of a hay-making party. As with all Richard Adams art works what is most striking is the wealth of detail and the narrative that the scene creates. Set against a background of thatched cottages and a church we see a picnic, running dogs, kissing couples and then above the church angels circle watching over the scene and lending it a dreamlike quality.
