'Landscape with Cows, near Sidmouth' by Stephen Brown

British artist Stephen Brown is known for his quintessential English Landscape paintings. Looking at ‘Landscape with Cows, near Sidmouth’ it is easy to see why. Brown captures the soft rolling Devon countryside set against a big sky, where clouds gently roll by. The setting for a perfect day.

Painting almost exclusively in oils Stephen Brown is constantly drawn to painting subjects near his home in the county of Devon. He is a master at depicting the hazy warm Summer Days in the Devon, Wiltshire and more recently Gloucestershire fields. Stephen is also excels as a Marine artist producing atmospheric paintings with the distinctive shimmering light associated with British beaches and coastal scenes.

However Stephen Brown is not limited to capturing images of the British Isles. He has also traveled extensively producing contemporary paintings of Italy. Like so many artists he particularly likes undertaking paintings of Venice. He has also succeeded in recording memorable subjects such as Lake Garda and Tuscany where his understanding and application of light and colour are evident in his paintings.

Stephen Brown paintings are always in demand and increasingly collectable. His art works are now available at Red Rag Gallery as Giclee Limited Edition Prints. Click here to view Stephen Brown Limited Edition Prints

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.
