Paul Talbot-Greaves RI


I have been working full time as an artist since 1998. My work can be described as representational in an impressionistic style, but I don’t seek to paint popular views or chase narrative within my work. Instead, I look for alternative views of the landscape, arranging striking compositions, playing dark against light, and introducing you to pattern and shadow.

​I also aim to connect with my audience on an emotional level, often drawing attention to elements of a subject that go unnoticed.

Most of my work is sourced from the Yorkshire hills where I live. I work on site with sketches and photographs, turning them into paintings back in the studio.

I also work plein air when time and weather allow. I’m quite a spontaneous and energetic painter, preferring to start and finish a painting in one session.

I work mostly in watercolour but also enjoy the freedom of acrylic, which I combine approaches from both watercolour and oil techniques.

I have been teaching painting for 25 years and I have written four books, contributed to numerous others, and written many articles for art magazines.

I now write regularly for The Artist magazine. In 2023 I was proudly made a member of the RI.
