Biography

Patrick Owen

artist's photo

I have always been fascinated by paintings. My earliest recollections are of a Victorian pastoral scene with long horned cattle in my grandparents' home, and later, the reproductions of paintings by Van Gogh and other masters hanging in school corridors.

After studying advanced level art at school, I attended life painting evening classes for many years and became a weekend painter of London Parks and views along the Regents Canal. I now live permanently in Wales and paint its landscape, the occasional portrait and still life.

I paint almost exclusively in oils directly from the subject and derive great pleasure from looking at and learning from the paintings of other artists, both past and present.
