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.

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.

Pathway at Ramster Gardens, Chiddingfold

I love colour and I remember feeling excited when 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

Always enthusiastic about drawing, Mike started by copying from comic books at the age of about seven or eight.

Pursuing further education in art was not encouraged at school (or home) so he studied zoology, sometimes known as the ‘artist’s science’ (possibly because of the amount of drawing involved).

A long career in computer software development didn’t allow for too much artistic progress, so Mike is now making up for lost time. He is fairly prolific and generally paints subjects based on places that he knows and enjoys, using either oils or acrylics.

Although his paintings are fairly figurative, his inclination is towards more abstraction. Unfortunately, the left side of the brain doesn’t always share this ambition and has an undue influence on the results.

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.

Art WebsiteTestimonials

"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!"

"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"
