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.

Scottish art: Limited Edition Prints by Hamish MacDonald

Hamish MacDonald - 'Summer Plockton'

Hamish MacDonald - 'Summer Plockton'

Scottish artist Hamish MacDonald died last year. As a result the numbers of Hamish MacDonald Limited Edition prints personally signed and number by Hamish are sadly running out fast.

Hamish MacDonald was one of the leading contemporary Scottish Artists. He painted mostly in oils and mixed media. He was very much a Scottish colourist at heart, but his approach to Scottish contemporary painting created an immediacy and spontaneity in his art. Inspiration for Hamish’s paintings and prints came from his roots – Scottish Landscapes and Scottish Marine scenes. And, his distinctive fluid style in the use of strong bold colours successfully created a sense of place and atmosphere.

Today’s featured print image is ’Summer Plockton’ one of the most attractive of Scottish anchorages. Here Hamish MacDonald’s very immediate style and bold use of colour and line create a real sense of the Scottish landscape with it’s traditional crofters cottages and charming setting.

British Artist Stephen Brown - Football Match, Sidmouth

British Artist Stephen Brown - Football Match, Sidmouth

This week I have been on holiday – touring the West of England and visiting as many art contemporary galleries as possible in Devon.

So what was my favourite artist? It was Stephen Brown who produces wonderful contemporary oil paintings and Limited Edition Prints of Devon landscapes and seascapes.

Stephen Brown was born in British County of Somerset in 1947. He studied contemporary art at the Somerset College of Art and later worked alongside artist Patrick Larking RP ROI. As a result Stephen came to admire and respect such artists as Sickert, George Clausen and Augustus John, all of whom had taught and befriended Larking while he was studying at the Royal Academy of Art

Stephen Brown is an elected a member of the Royal Society of British Artists (RBA). This was after a recommendation from Ken Howard, an admirer of Stephen Brown’s contemporary paintings.
