Like most children, Richard liked to draw and trips to Dartmoor with the family proved to be a source of inspiration. Those early images of the rugged hills and streams provided the source of his affinity with nature and landscape.
Richard was born in Torquay and as a result the sea is a constant source of subject matter. Richard is an intuitive artist, preferring to paint from 'feeling' rather than an academic standpoint.
He says "I love the poetry of the land and the sea. The associations are strong and deep and I try to convey this in my work".
Composition and contrast are the keys to inspire him to paint a subject.
His objective is to convey the textures that exist in nature and to achieve this he likes to incorporate other media into his work such as acrylic, body-colour, pastel, ink, coloured crayon and even the humble biro.
