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

Evelyn Bartlett gained a degree in graphic design at Kingston. She moved to Devon afterwards and soon turned freelance, producing illustrations and designs for
publishers, advertisers, hotels and holiday parks.

After raising a family and living in South Devon for over 30 years, she moved to Hampshire and has been painting full-time, reviving a style she only touched on as a
student, using gouache. This strong, distinctive application owes everything to her graphic ‘roots’ and has become her signature.

The past twelve months have seen her experiment with oils and acrylic, to try out larger works; watch this space!

Evelyn has had successful exhibitions at venues in Hampshire, Dorset and Devon. She still owns a house in Exeter and frequently returns to the West Country for business and pleasure.

About The Artist

With no encouragement to do art at school, despite winning first prize for my age group drawing the Black Horse for Lloyds Bank, I ended up in the City of London as an Investment Banker.

Going back to painting happened by accident, literally. A car accident forced me to stop horse riding and whilst recovering, I took up painting again, learning from various members of the Royal Academy of Art and the Royal Society of Arts.

Now my boys have flown the nest, that desire to paint has been unleashed. I have a love of portraiture, animals, birds and people but also explore abstract and landscape. Specialising in oils, I am driven by light and colour. The outdoors, particularly early mornings, the cool fresh air, gentle colours, rolling mists all provide inspiration for my work and the raw emotions that life presents are finding a release in abstract form.
