The featured artist for August is BOB ARMSTRONG
Bob is a landscape artist concentrating on the wilder parts of Britain. Inspiration comes from having lived amongst the hills and moors of the North Pennines and this, together with our wonderful coastline, has shaped his work.
His paintings, nearly always developed from sketches, are in acrylic, watercolour, ink and pastel usually in combinations of some or all of them.
Bob is represented by galleries in the North of England, Wales and Scotland as well as in his home county of Lincolnshire. He is a past prize-winner of the Spirit of Lyn art competition and has been featured in articles in Artists and Illustrators and The Artist magazines.
In 2012 he was a finalist in the Sunday Times Watercolour exhibition at the Mall Galleries in London, and he has just been selected again for the 2018 exhibition.
