Framed and portfolio watercolour paintings covering a wide range of subject matter - much local. Cards/notelets from the paintings.
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 I.C.I./Zenica, latterly in business management which involved a lot of time overseas.
In those days painting was a relaxing hobby.
Since retiring his work has evolved, although apart from the family background and some short courses, John is self-taught and his work continues to develop.
Painting in watercolour John covers a wide range of subject matter including landscapes and animal life. He derives particular inspiration 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 the medium.
His work today is popular and 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.
