About Ray Johnstone

 
 
  • Biography
    Painting from photographs is Ray Johnstone's speciality.
         Here is a 'ballpark' costing for a portrait done from a photograph: Size 30 x 40 cms, watercolour on high grade paper, 125 euros. Contact me via ArtFinder.
         Ray lives with his wife in a tiny medieval village in SW France where he paints and teaches art. They offer all-inclusive week-long art holidays. Full details are very easy to find on the internet. 
         Ray has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Fine Arts,  majoring in painting, drawing and sculpture, and where he participated in numerous group shows, including several at the prestigious Total Gallery in Johannesburg.
        One of his large nudes in a Pretoria University exhibition created a controversy when  a screen had to be erected around the painting to prevent it being seen by the South African Prime Minister John Vorster.
        While living in Australia, he had seven solo exhibitions in Melbourne, and in 1997 he won the Applied Chemicals International Acquisitive Prize for a watercolour of a Victorian factory building in Melbourne. Australian radio personalities Terry Lane and Doug Aiton both have portraits done by Ray Johnstone and his works are held by private collectors in France, Hong Kong, the USA, Canada, the UK,  Australia and South Africa.
