Artist Spotlight: John Waterhouse

A closer look at John Waterhouse, considered to be one of the UK's leading and collectable landscape artists

John's spellbinding landscape paintings of countryside shrouded in mist reflect his belief in expressing true emotion through art and of calm contemplation.

Having grown up in the beautiful Staffordshire countryside, John developed a passion for painting from an early age and describes himself as a student of light, explaining that he studies how the light may fall on some grasses or reflect on the water of a flooded field.

Before painting full time, he worked at a high security prison as an art tutor, working with young offenders, and came to believe that art has the power to touch people’s lives and change them for the better in a multitude of ways - "Art lets you dig deep inside yourself and turn the energy into something positive".

 

 

John's creative process is painstaking and meticulous, involving weeks of preparation prior to working on the finished oil painting. Each piece originates in a memory or an emotion, which he may jot down as a title, a quick sketch, or something more in-depth - sketches or drawings which help him to reconnect with the feelings or memories that gave him that initial idea.
