About The Artist

My work is principally focused on interpreting and expressing a sense of place. I seek to express the unique quality of places… landscapes, seascapes and townscapes.

I have studied and qualified in Fine Art, Landscape Architecture and Urban Design and I am a fellow of the Landscape Institute. I have always had a love of painting from the very earliest age. I have been fortunate in my career as a Landscape Architect to design and to have had built, four dimensional ‘ Big Art ‘ on a large scale, which have matured over time and have become memorable places, I hope.

There is great satisfaction in seeing people enjoying the environments that I have designed and I have gained a number of national design awards for my work. It is only relatively recently that painting has absorbed me once more and it feels like I have taken a long journey to return to a first love!

More About The Artist

I find painting the most immediate and expressive of all artistic practices. I am drawn to painting mainly landscapes and seascapes, which I believe is rooted in my particular love and understanding of ‘landscape’ in it’s widest sense. In it’s essence, this is the connection between place and people, at a specific time to create a ‘genius loci’ or ‘sense of place’.

I particularly like to work with texture and often use pastes and sometimes apply gold leaf. I almost always use reflective paints in the work to capture and reflect the light. I will usually combine the use of palette knife and soften this with brush work. I remain inspired by the enduring impressionist masters: Turner, Klimt, Monet, Cezanne, Matisse, Pissaro and also the more contemporary Landscape artists Mackintosh, Hitchens, Manrique, Heron, Rae, Iden … and I would describe my paintings as broadly impressionistic.

I am always very pleased to take commissions. If you have an idea in mind for a particular space then please just contact me at pauljbest@aol.com. I would really appreciate any feedback on my work. If you see a painting that you love then please do feel free to make an offer or to message me for any further information. I love to think that people enjoy having the paintings in their homes and this is a big part of the pleasure of offering the work for sale.

About The Artist

Born in 1985, Will Rochfort grew up in Lymington on the south coast of England and, apart from his time studying Illustration and Fine Art at Kingston University, he has lived there all his life. Since graduating in 2008 his focus has been primarily oil painting. Will’s main reason for becoming an artist is from a passion for creativity.

“There is rarely any strong meaning or message behind my work – narrative takes a large role because I like the work to be emotive through what is being portrayed, but creativity is the driving force behind all of my paintings”

From 2008 to 2010 Will Rochfort worked as an Official Artist for the 2012 London Olympics, working with Olympic Gold Medalists, producing paintings in support of the Games and its associated charities.

As well as completing several portrait commissions, Will Rochfort is always searching for new ideas for paintings and usually finds this in books or cinema. With influences ranging from Degas to Rockwell, to the films of Steven Spielberg, it is narrative that really interests Will and he always aims to have a story within his work.

“I am a very visual painter and with the public being my target audience over the art establishment, I always aim to depict scenes that, through the characters portrayed, I hope people can relate to and enjoy”

Tree - Ramster Gardens Chiddingfold Surrey - Hartley Witney Artist Nicholas-Walsh

Tree at Ramster Gardens, Chiddingfold

I love colour, and I remember feeling excited by looking at all the flowers in full bloom. Ramster Gardens is a magical location, and has an enormous range of trees and plants. I used a large combination of warm colours for the foreground and cool colours for the background, to give an impression of distance.
The end result is very close to the actual scene.

About The Artist

I am a Fine Artist based near Hartley Wintney in Hampshire but I also spend a few months of the year in Marbella in Spain, where I paint on location.

I studied ‘visual communications’ and completed a foundation course in the late 1980’s - gaining a distinction at the Cardiff Institute of Art and Design. I then worked in London as an Art Director for a number of leading agencies, before deciding to concentrate on oil painting and pen and ink drawing. I have been classically trained and my style has been described as similar to that of the 'Impressionists'.

My paintings and drawings are for sale and can be viewed on this Hampshire Artists site and in the Gallery of my website. I am also available to undertake commissioned work.

I offer art lessons.

Art Lessons

I am in the process of setting up art classes in the evenings for the Fleet area of Hampshire in the UK, and also in Marbella in Spain. I will naturally be teaching adult students how to paint in oils, and will also be concentrating on developing their drawing techniques.

The objective of the courses will be to focus on individual requirements. Everybody has their own preferences regarding what they like to paint or draw. I will endeavour to improve a student’s skill level, so they become more confident and proficient.

I also will be organising groups to join me during some weekends drawing and painting landscapes on location.

If you would like to know more about these lessons please contact me on the numbers or email address above.

About The Artist

David has done a little painting for many years, but it is only in his recent retirement that he has begun to take it more seriously.

David worked professionally as a cinematographer, and was employed for thirty years at the BBC Television Film Unit. It is the skills learnt in his profession, of composition, perspective, lighting and colour that he endeavours to bring to his paintings.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, photography plays a large part in the inspiration for his paintings and he works entirely from his own photographs.
He can be inspired by almost any subject, but a lifelong love of the sea results in a strong bias towards maritime subjects.

David's preferred medium is water soluble oils on prepared board.

"Having tried a “do-it-yourself “ website construction, with horrible results, a friend recommended Chris.
I have been more than happy with the website he designed for me, and it has had a lot of positive reaction.
He has just produced a shiny new version, which is even better!"

"Dear Chris,
We are delighted with our art website. In addition to all the items we requested, you have added many artistic details that really enhanced the site.
We would also like to thank you for your patience, explaining and talking us through all the concepts we did not understand.
It has also been reassuring knowing that you are on the end of the phone ready to answer our queries as they arise.
It has been a pleasure working with you.

Best regards."

"This is the second website that Chris and Colette from Surrey Artists have designed for me and I am delighted with the result. They put in an amazing amount of work collating a large amount of detail to ensure my paintings are professionally displayed.
The finished website has already attracted a large number of serious enquiries some of which have been converted"
