Although Richard has worked as a Civil Engineer & Contracts Manager he has been painting on and off all his adult life. His first love was oil paints but in recent years he has been seduced by the benefits afforded by fast drying acrylics. They allow him to work at a pace which lets him bring more of the excitement of the subject into the finished work. He likes to work on a variety of subjects; the key is that the subject excites or challenges him. The style he favours is not dissimilar to Impressionism but he also like experimenting with other styles.
He is a member of the Nottingham Society of Artists, The Soft Edges Art Group, The Arnold Art Society and The Sherwood Art Workshop.
He also attended workshops with the late John Townsend, the international Nottinghamshire portrait painter.
This continued to improve his portrait and general painting skills.
Richard has won a number of awards and has paintings displayed in Ireland, Portugal, USA & Denmark as well as the UK.
