Steve Hall was born and educated in Bath, a city which is just on the edge of the Mendip Hills. His inspiration to paint comes from his love of the countryside with it’s ever changing moods and this is evident in his paintings.
Steve taught building and architecture for many years and during this time developed an acute awareness of the shape and form of the natural world around him.
After twenty five years in Further Education Steve left his post as an Assistant College Principal to embark on a totally new career in watercolour painting. His former teaching knowledge stood him in good stead and since 1996 has steadily built up an annual portfolio of courses across many parts of the UK and Spain.
Steve has written five books on other artists, including Edward Wesson, Trevor Chamberlain, Alwyn Crawshaw and John Yardly and is a contributor to The Artist magazine. He has also produced three instructional DVDs with Town House Films.
His style is influenced by such artists as Seago, Wesson and Jack Merriott and he delights in any opportunity to encourage others to paint in this loose and free way.
