Paul P Smith

 

Born 1966, Paul has painted in oils for over thirty years, he now focuses on detailed paintings of nature that tie into events in his life, inspired from many sources that includes the painters Durer, Rembrandt, Andrew Wyeth and more recently Antonio Lopez Garcia.

Paul uses traditional techniques to produce work of exceptional quality, often on a large scale, he attempts to produce paintings that in some way are tactile, sensitive and meaningful as best he can to create realism that is not simply photographic.

PAUL WAS SHORT-LISTED FOR THE BP PORTRAIT AWARDs IN 2015 WITH HIS 'portrait of ester sexton, aged 12'.
