Richard is painting landscapes of Edinburgh also large paintings of local views of Peebles and the Scottish Borders for exhibition in 2019. For variety and for fun he is also painting a series of local gardens and favourite flowers. Already this year he has accepted a number of commissions of animal portraits (horses, cats and dogs) to be painted in acrylics on board or canvas.
A visit to family in California this year provided an exciting opportunity to view the art scene in the Sunshine State . - and lots of ideas for paintings - and time to paint en plein air !!!!
Richard particularly loves to paint animal portraits in acrylics on paper or canvas. He is largely self-taught - WATERCOLOURS in the seventies, PASTEL paintings of still life, landscapes and human and animal portraits throughout the eighties and nineties - OILS from 1995 and ACRYLICS from 2004 when he moved from Edinburgh to the ancient Royal Burgh of Peebles in the Scottish Borders. After 15 very happy years in Peebles, Richard has returned to Edinburgh. Presently, he is enjoying furnishing a new studio.
Richard will continue to organize the annual PEEBLES ART GROUP EXHIBITION which is held in The Gallery, Tweeddale Museum, Chambers Institution, High Street, Peebles, Scottish Borders. This is open to members, previous exhibitors and invited artists.
He likes to paint a variety of subjects in a variety of mediums and accepts commissions - usually ready within 21 -28 days subject to workload.
