Richard Simkins

Although I have worked as a Civil Engineer & Contracts Manager I have been painting on and off all my adult life. My first love was oil paints but in recent years I have been seduced by the benefits afforded by fast drying acrylics. They allow me to work at a pace which lets me bring more of the excitement of the subject into the finished work. I like to work on a variety of subjects; the key is that the subject excites or challenges me. The style I favour is not dissimilar to impressionism but I also like experimenting with other styles. As well as being a member of the Arnold Art Society I also attend workshops with John Townsend, the International Nottinghamshire portrait painter. This is continuing to improve my portrait and general painting skills. Since being a member of the Society I have won a number of awards and have paintings displayed in Ireland, Portugal & Denmark as well as the UK.
