Robert Thompson - UK Artist

Colours and Painting Inspire Me..

” Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life” – Pablo Picasso
My Statement;
“Art can depict a story, moods and feelings in many forms. 
Painting can create unique sensory journeys into subjects which other mediums struggle to emulate.
I have a profound respect for photorealism, but a painting should obviously be a painting in my opinion. I want artwork to have obvious painting dynamism, brush strokes, drips and textures, using these to convey tone, colour and form rather than a direct copy from a photograph.
