John’s impressionist scenes are the perfect addition for those seeking to add some serenity to their collection, with a gentle splash of cheerful colour.
About John’s Work
John’s figurative landscape scenes have gained popularity by capturing peaceful and joyful moments in natural or urban surroundings. After exhibiting in London over a period of years, he took up painting on a full-time basis, enabling him to combine his passion for travel with the opportunity to source artistic inspiration from around the world. His inspirations vary from a stroll down a tranquil country lane, feeling the warmth of a sun-drenched beach, to soaking up the atmosphere of a vibrant café, and in every case, the result is a charming and inviting scene. The artist often draws upon the inquisitiveness of children to build a narrative within his paintings, which lends a jovial playfulness to his scenes.
John works with acrylic paint to achieve the careful balancing of light and shadow in his work, particularly in areas of reflections on water. His capturing of fleeting moments references the impressionists, and yields an equally timeless body of work.
John’s paintings are predominantly smaller works, in the region of 30cm to 60cm in size. These quaint nostalgic scenes make perfect accent pieces, and can be styled beneath wall lamps or above side tables, to create a charming focal point. John’s timeless impressionist style is perfectly suited to more traditional interiors, but can equally introduce an understated vitality to more modern interior designs. Many of John’s artworks are part of our Art Under £1000 Collection, making them the perfect affordable addition to your own collection or to gift to a loved one.
