Richard Holland

Richard has had an interest in art since primary school, and probably

inherited this from his father's artistic talents. He started painting

watercolours avidly in his early twenties and then exhibited and sold his

watercolours at a local gallery. He then studied A level Art between

1999-2001 and began working in oils and steadily built up a large

collection of oil paintings along with his original watercolours.

Before becoming a full time artist in 2006 he was a full time tutor

teaching at West Nottinghamshire College for eleven years in the area of

IT. For five years over this period he was given the chance to teach oil

and watercolour painting to mature learners in the community. This gave

him the grounding he needed to begin teaching his weekly classes,

workshops and painting holidays. In 2010 he completed a BA with

honours degree in Art History. He currently demonstrates to art clubs

around the country.

Most of his paintings have been created by first producing pen or pencil sketches for quickness but he has also painted

watercolour and oil sketches with photographs as a back-up, all done on location, from which he can use in the studio to

create larger works. He takes his sketch book everywhere working mainly in pen for quickness. He is a keen rambler

and much of his inspiration comes whilst out walking. He paints a wide range of subject matter, mainly in oils but also

watercolours too. He prefers painting the landscape in a variety of different styles ranging from figurative to semi

abstract as well as figurative scenes too.
