Hi I’m Richard, a contemporary abstract artist. On this website you can view my colourful grass landscape paintings that I have for sale. I’m adding paintings every week so there’s always something new to see. In addition to colourful grass meadows, my art often features abstract flowers and trees. Occasionally I also paint abstract portraits and abstract expressionist ‘drip and splash’ canvases as well.
The paintings are done using water-based paints on canvas. I can supply them both as un-stretched canvases for you to stretch or frame yourself, or as stretched canvases that are ready to hang straight away.
Most of the artwork is very expressive and rich in colour though occasionally I also enjoy exploring a very reduced palette of colours, including black and white paintings. I use different painting techniques including using a knife to apply paint and brushing paint on to the canvas in a more traditional way. I often apply one or two pure colours at once and then let that layer dry, before adding a further one or two layers of paint. In this way I build up a rich tapestry of colour. In other situations I apply diluted paint to the canvas whilst the underlying paint is still wet. In this way the different colours of paint partially mix together on the surface of the canvas in a very natural way, creating an unlimited range of patterns and effects.
Most of my art you see here is semi-abstract in nature. The paintings suggest form without ever depicting it in full detail. I like to let people’s imaginations loose, with each viewer taking the painting in his or her own direction. I have always been a big fan of the the natural world and this is reflected in my artwork, with colourgul grass meadows featuring heavily, as well as flowers and trees.
I ship my paintings throughout the UK. I send my paintings via courier which has tracking information and I pack them carefully to ensure their safe arrival. I’m afraid I can not ship any paintings to the Channel Islands or to outside the UK.
