Richard Grant

Richard lives on the Island and is mainly a painter in acrylics of historical transport scenes with an instantly recognisable and consistent style. His subjects cover transport subjects across land, sea and air and each painting has a story to it.  


'The paintings often require a great deal of technical construction in the initial drawing stage as the subjects are usually of a very technical origin and failure to get it right at this stage could result in a very visible error. It is at this stage that most of the research for the picture is done and carries on during the time the painting is underway, some subjects being a lot easier than others'.


However, despite achieving a technically correct depiction of the subject they still stand out as true and individual work of art rather than lifeless technical illustrations.
