John Hoar

John Hoar is a very well known watercolour artist and inspirations have

been the great impressionist watercolour artists who perfected the art of

painting in the most direct and economical way. His paintings are widely

sought after and he specialises in architectural subjects as well as

landscapes, marine scenes and floral studies.

He was born in 1947, the son of Frank Hoar the cartoonist - "Acanthus"

of Punch magazine and a highly accomplished watercolourist. John

studied Architecture at Cambridge and Brixton School of Building and,

although he studied drawing and painting with Ruskin Spear R.A., he is

largely self taught. He has painted professionally since 1980 and is

represented in collections in England, Ireland and the USA.

John won first prize for watercolour in 1988, the Donald Blake prize in 2003 and the Lincoln Joyce prize, at the Royal

Institute of Painters in Watercolour, in the same year. He is part author of 'Watercolour Plus', published by David and

Charles in 2003 and in 2008 he issued a DVD called 'Simplifying Watercolours'.

His instructional DVDs, made by Town House TV, have been best sellers for some years and are sold all over the world.

In 2016 he represented Britain at the 2nd Qingdao International Watercolour Salon in China.
