About The Artist

I took up painting seriously when I retired and moved to Dorset in 2009. I attend art lessons at the Studio Art School in Upwey once a week.

I enjoy painting landscapes most of all. I have travelled a great deal and take photos wherever I go. As well as Europe, I have visited Japan, India and Canada and I have painted many scenes from these countries.

Umbrellas - Wet Day in Town - Weymouth Dorset Artist Chris Cotes
I work from my studio in Weymouth and am fortunate to have the South West Coast Path virtually on my doorstep. This year, when travel has been limited, I have painted many more local scenes. A recent trip to Scotland provided additional material.

I like to experiment with various media and colours and have completed a number of abstract and semi-abstract works. If I succeed in painting a picture that is pleasing to the eye, I am satisfied.

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"
