RICHARD HURST

Artist Richard Hurst grew up in rural Derbyshire where his love of the Pennines was born. Today, he appreciates them from his home County Durham. He takes much of his inspiration for his abstract watercolours from the changing landscape of these hills stretching from Derbyshire to Northumberland. Richard's work embodies everything, from their geology to their weather.

He first developed an increased awareness in these things through his work as a surveyor, where he would research the history of land use. Later transferring these memories of hills and moorlands to his artwork.

Influenced by Constable and Turner, his early paintings were traditional landscape. Now, his technique is far from traditional and watercolour is just the start of his creative process.

After painting, he digitally develops details in the image to create his unique one-off giclee prints which are sold mounted and framed
