John Thompson

I thought it was time that i introduced you to one of my favourite artists.
For well over a year now i have been completely in love with the paintings produced by John Thompson, an artist currently based in West Sussex. I first discovered his work at Wakehurst Place on display, and was lucky to meet him and watch him paint! He has a lovely spot in the old manor house at Wakehurst, where you can watch him paint, have a little chat and if you have children he encourages them to paint straight on to canvas', which are often used for their own exhibitions and for calendars sold at wakehurst!

He is a genuine and kind man with an enormous talent and i encourage you to have a look at his work!

He paints mostly landscapes and British countryside, with a very free and expressive style, bursting with colour and life!

Here are a few of my favourites of his paintings:
