Richard Bolton
Born in 1950 Richard Bolton studied at Shrewsbury College of Art. On completing his studies, Richard started his professional career as a technical illustrator for the Ministry of Defence, and it is from this period that he owes his attention to detail, his acute observation and his love of machinery. His pictures often include old farm implements, traction engines or abandoned rusting cars. Richard had written many books on the subject of watercolour painting. The first book was "Painting Weathered Textures in Watercolour" which highlights Richard's uncanny skill in capturing rusty metal and weathered wood and was voted "Art Book of the Month" in America in 1983. His success in the USA and Canada has been recognized in more and more of his works being reproduced in print form. In the UK his original work has been seen in galleries in London and Cambridge. His technical ability with the medium of watercolour are truly prodigious. A reflection in water, the shade and light on snow, the warmth of stone, the texture and pattern of trees against the horizon, all are loveing represented in Richard's own distinctive style. In 2003 he moved to Geraldine in New Zealand where he continues to paint and is going from strength to strength.
