Richard Thorn

Richard began his painting career in the early 80's after a long sojourn in London playing Jazz. Since those early days his paintings have been sold and exhibited in many leading galleries around the world. Recently, after having his work accepted for the last four years at the Royal Institute for Painters in Watercolour open exhibitions, he won two awards for best watercolour.

Light, texture and distance are his principal concerns. These elements predominate his subject matter. There is a constant search for new techniques toward those goals.

"For me, painting is a continuum – an exploration. But watercolour is a medium that seems to be always one step ahead"
