We are sorry to announce that Richard passed away on 15th October. He was a wonderfully talented painter and teacher and a dear friend. He was a great inspiration to us when we started the gallery and will be sorely missed.
Richard Price is a member of the Royal Institute of Oil Painters and sells his work internationally and has also exhibited at the Royal Academy of Arts and the Royal College of Arts. Richard was Artist in Residence for Jubilee Year at the Hurlingham Club.
Richard’s work is concerned with light and atmosphere and falls within the traditions of artists such as Turner and Walter Sickert. While some of his work is done in the studio, Richard is predominantly an ‘en plein air’ painter and most of his work is therefore painted immediately in front of his subject.
The challenge of this type of work is in being able to rapidly analyze colour and tone at the same time as capturing the constantly moving drama of the environment.
