About the artist

Framed and portfolio watercolours covering a wide range of subject matter. Also cards from the paintings.

Personal Statement

John Robinson comes from a painting family; his father and brother were professional graphic and fine artists but John graduated in agronomy and developed a busy career with ICI/Zeneca, latterly in business management which involved a lot of time overseas. In those days painting was a relaxing hobby.
Since retiring he has developed his work, although apart from the family background and some short courses John is self-taught.
Painting in watercolour John covers a wide range of subject matter including landscapes and animal life. He derives particular inspiration and pleasure from the form and mood of the Hampshire and Sussex countryside, especially the downs.
While his interpretations tend towards the literal, he aims to exploit the spontaneity and freshness of watercolour.
He exhibits widely in Sussex and Hampshire through galleries, group exhibitions and art societies. He is a full member of the Association of Sussex Artists and participates annually in the Chichester Art Trail. Purchasers of his work have come from all over Britain and many countries overseas.
