An Orange Grove
Richard Thorn SWAc
Pastel and Gouache
Richard Thorn was brought up living close to the sea in the beautiful Devon countryside. He has become one of Britain’s most successful landscape painters. After leaving Art College, he set out upon a career in music but returned to painting professionally in his 20’s. Working in watercolours, gouache pastels and acrylic he has produced many fine paintings of the landscapes and coastline of Devon and Cornwall and further afield in Europe. His paintings are very atmospheric and Thorn says “I love the poetry of the land and the sea. The associations are strong and deep and I try to convey this in my work”.
His work is reproduced as fine art prints and these are so popular that in 2012 he was a finalist for the Best Selling Published Artist of the Year competition.
He has exhibited in the Red Rag Gallery and many other leading British galleries.
