About andrew hodgson

 
 
  • Biography

    My work is almost 100% watercolour, with a mixture of plein air and studio time.

    I am in love with landscape painting as I live in a beautiful lush part of Portugal with amazing light, landscape and colour. I also like to paint people. As soon as one painting is finished I walk around with an eye out for the next inspirational moment unless I am too caught up in lifes other distractions.

    I am mainly interested in catching the play of light and atmosphere in a loose impressionistic style.

    I have been hugely influenced in various ways by the following during my 30 years since I picked up a brush for the first time.

    My dad - Professional art teacher

     Lionel Horsenall = plein air painter

    John Blockley - author

    Seana Mallen - teacher/painter

    Rehanna Gardener - friend painter

    Charles Reid - author

    Joseph Zbukvic - author

    I try to keep my paintings loose and the faster ones are often the best  but not always.

    My technique is a simple watercolour one, using only paper, pigment, sometimes latex and the other little tricks of the trade.

    I feel I have only just begun on this journey of colour and atmosphere and am very excited about taking my work to another level and to different areas.
