About Roger

logo

I am a painter of landscapes and seascapes working principally in oils. I was taught to paint in a traditional manner using the working methods and modern day equivalents of the materials and mediums used by the Masters. Many of these processes are used in my paintings to create atmospheric optical effects that add interest to my work. Also I enjoy observing life and will use pencil, and pen and ink to produce finished drawings and sketches of subjects that capture my interest. Many of these works are based on travel overseas, especially in Mediterranean Europe,  India, Central and South America, Australia and New Zealand.

Travel the world, but home is always best. Dorset is a very beautiful county, renowned for its World Heritage coastline and unspoilt countryside. It has been my home for over 30 years and is the inspiration for most of my work.

In 2020 I was delighted to have oil paintings selected for The Royal Society of Marine Artists and The Royal Institute of Oil Painters Annual Exhibitions at the Mall Galleries, London. Locally, I am represented by the Gallery at 41 in Corfe Castle, Dorset.

my approach

I have always drawn and painted but in 2006 I switched my main focus from pastel to oils. Increasingly my work is becoming looser in style with controlled, but expressive and energetic brushwork. I am a painter of atmosphere. I revel in cloud studies and take much inspiration from the work of JMW Turner, Fred Cumings RA and Edward Seago.
