About Richard Thorn, the artist:
During his childhood Richard spent years drawing and painting. Later, this passion took him to art college. Followed by an accomplished career as an artist alongside a career in music. As he admits, these creative outlets complement each other. So they allow him to express himself in many different ways. When observing his work, one can almost see a musicality in his paintings.
Over the years, Richard has received many high accolades. Like exhibiting at the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolours. Considered a reference centre for excellence in his practise. As well as winning several international awards. He is also a member of the prestigious South West Academy.
About Richard Thorn’s work:
Equally important is Richard constant exploration of new work. Acquiring new techniques, he denotes a spatial awareness that creates the illusion of light and texture. In order to achieve the feeling of a location, he often paints “en plain air”. This results in West Country landscapes that are exuberant in confidence and flair. Also, his passion for sketching gives his watercolours the distinctive mark making of dry media. At the same time, his use of watercolours and watercolour inks is copious, resulting in exquisite layering and radiant colours.
Of course, this often results in an inviting and peaceful piece. Like “Shadows on the Teign”. Featuring dreamlike scenes of real places. Like this spot on the river Teign, where you can watch the river run by. Truly surrounded by the characteristic Devon woodland.
