Paterson Art by Steven Paterson

Original Art in Oils by Steven Paterson

As a painter I am inspired by light, water and reflections.

The countryside and coastlines of Norfolk are a constant source of inspiration.

I like to paint in the great outdoors (en plein air) whenever possible as well as in my studio where I can work on more considered pieces whilst attempting to maintain the freshness of painting outside.

En plein air is an instinctive way of painting, reacting to the changing weather and light conditions which often produces unforeseen results. It is all about capturing the “essence” of a place in a few brushstrokes and limited amount of time.
