About Paul Acraman
There are no upcoming events
I paint and draw because in doing so I see the beauty in the world. The act of painting opens my eyes to more and more wonders. I believe that the duty of the artist is to share their vision - I try to achieve this through my art and tuition. There is an incredible richness of colour, movement and life which often just passes us by.
When I paint I try and capture those colours and movement and the spirit of what I am experiencing when out in nature.
I work in many media, favouring acrylics, watercolours and oils. I try to express what I see and feel in direct strokes of colour with brush and knife, with the minimum of fiddling.
My favourite subjects are seas, skies and trees with their constantly changing patterns and moods.
I tend to work outdoors collecting sketches, photos and ideas. I then take these back to my studio to develop and create the final paintings
