Contemporary Landscape Paintings by Artist Richard Whadcock
Richard Whadcock is one of the UK's leading contemporary artists, specialising in atmospheric landscape paintings. His contemporary landscape paintings explore the South Downs and East Sussex coast. Trying to capture its ever changing dramatic atmosphere from silent stillness to squally days. The South Downs are only a starting point as the paintings themselves eventually take over and follow their own path creating their unique surface landscape.

Richard studied fine art painting and printmaking at Bristol Polytechnic and then went on to complete his Masters at the Royal College of Art in 1989-91. He then moved to Brighton and established his studio at Phoenix Brighton. A residency at Lowick House Print Workshop in Cumbria in 1996 further developed his printmaking but also led to painting coming more to the fore and becoming his main area of developement. The methods and qualities of printmaking have continued to filter into his way of working through a painting's development. From the many layers of re-drawn etching plates and velvety line of a dry point to the direct mark making that appealed in lithography. These all work together to form the painting's feeling, atmosphere and presence.
"Richard Whadcock is a landscape painter but not in the usual way. The paintings seem to come out of the wall and hug you in mists. So beautiful."
