The give and take of urban and rural visions absorbs Paul Newland NEAC RWS; the merging and flux at the edges.



Artist Statement

Paul grew up, studied, taught and painted in London, with shortish foreign interludes. Away from London now - but not too far away - he works with landscape and townscape and where the two meet. He works in front of his subject matter and in the studio too, combining - he hopes - the observed and the imaginary.


Method of Working

He always wanted to work fast and finish quickly but this happens only occasionally. Small works are always started on the spot but not always completed there. Oils and watercolours, even small ones, can go on for a long time in an on/off sort of way.
