Rob Newton

Rob Newton lives and works in Northumberland, and exhibits throughout the U.K.
His painting is as much an exploration of the medium, its plasticity and how it conveys an illusion of reality, as it is a very personal appreciation of the watery landscapes that surround him.
“I describe my work as ‘Painting Nature’, as a direct response to my immediate surroundings; exploring colour, composition and expression yet maintaining the very traditions of British painting. Making sketches as well as my own visual notes, I paint intuitively and expressively with bold sweeping brushstrokes that sum up whole passages of my subject.”
