Robert Newton

northumberland_galleries_alnmouthBorn 1964, Robert Newton studied Fine Art at Sunderland University and is currently living and working in Northumberland.

“I describe my work as ‘Painting Nature’, as a direct response to my immediate surroundings, exploring colour, composition and expression yet maintaining the very traditions of painting. Making sketches as well my own visual notes I paint intuitively and expressively with bold sweeping brushstrokes that sum up whole passages of the landscape that is before me. Painting on location and in the studio, I often rework paintings intuitively to produce a completed work.”
