Description

About the Artist

Paul Talbot-Greaves is a professional landscape painter who works in both watercolour and acrylic. His work reflects the rugged scenery of the landscape, either in the context of wild places or in the nature of the South Pennine landscape where he lives. Here, he draws my inspiration from the remains of the pre-industrial era where crumbling enclosure walls and ancient pastures still survive. It is this or the open mountain and moorland terrain that inspires him to explore the spirit of historical connections using layers of colour, texture, shapes and patterns applied with energy and feeling.

Paul writes for The Artist magazine and have four practical art books published to date as well as contributing to many others. Throughout his painting life he has been made a Companion of the International Guild of Artists, an Associate of the British Watercolour Society, a Professional Associate and advisory panellist of the SAA, president of the Halifax Art Society, as well as an advisory panellist for Artists and Illustrators magazine.
