THE HARRISON LORD GALLERY - 5 BRADFORD ROAD - BRIGHOUSE - WEST YORKSHIRE
I am an oil-painter with a particular interest in figure and en plein-air painting. Whenever possible I like to paint in the open air, directly in front of the subject. This, I think, gives my work a vibrancy and vitality sadly lacking in much of studio painting. In fact, I disapprove of studios. Some one once said that a brush stroke in the field is worth twenty in the studio, and my own experience makes me heartily agree with this. When I started painting I think the thing that first attracted me was Ruskin's exhortation that all men, as part of their morning salutations, should go out and paint a picture of the sky. This sounded like a very nice thing to do, so I decided to give it a go, and I've not really stopped painting since.
