BOLTON Richard


Watercolour has some very special qualities. It can shine with a luminosity like no other form of painting, and its transparent nature reveals the workings of the artist. I became hooked on this medium early on and have striven to perfect my style of painting ever since....

As my books demonstrate, I like to paint a variety of subjects, though landscape has been a frequent theme. I lived close to the river Ouse in Cambridgeshire for many years, so scenes of fens and slow moving rivers were a common feature of my work. Like many painters before me, I find travel a great stimulus for painting and have been fortunate to be invited to paint within China, Tibet, Taiwan, Israel as well as my own personal trips to different places.

I moved to Geraldine in New Zealand three years ago with my New Zealand born wife, and now face the challenge of a dramatic landscape of rugged mountains and rock strewn rivers.
