Roger is an established Dorset painter of landscapes and coastal scenes working mainly with oils. Roger was taught by a professional teaching artist to paint in the traditional manner of 19C and 20C English landscape painters and he adapts their working methods and processes to produce his original work. The underlying influences of Turner and Edward Seago feature in many of his paintings. These can be moody and atmospheric in capturing time and place and are characterised by their tonal qualities, interesting optical effects and energetic brushstrokes. Recent work is less resolved allowing viewers to participate in a personal journey of discovery and interpretation.
Roger is fascinated by the way colours, mood and atmosphere alter daily throughout the seasons in different light conditions. Big dramatic skies feature in many of his paintings and create opportunities for Roger to experiment with the intricacies of colour harmonisation, value, opacity and transparency.
Roger has recently exhibited at both The Royal Society of Marine Artists and The Royal Institute of Oil Painters. For his full biography please follow the link to his artist’s page below.
