Mike Brown (Fine Art)
have been painting for many years and am a member of Brigantia and Made in Yorkshire, two
associations of art and craft workers who are established within the county. I
sell originals and prints through exhibitions and fairs across the region. Numerous paintings have gone to various parts
of the world; several have also been purchased and are exhibited by South
Tees NHS Trust and I currently have work
showing in High Parks Gallery.
of my paintings are of scenes of the Yorkshire Dales and Moors; areas close by
home, that I know well from walking and that I love for their unspoiled beauty
and peace. My aim to capture something of the enjoyment I feel when standing on
a hillside, by a river or walking along a lane.
composition of my paintings is usually straightforward; the landscape of
fields, cloud-dappled hillsides, barns and drystone walls frequently provide a
lead-in to the picture. I deliberately use a restricted palette which
helps the unity of the painting and I aim to create the illusion of detail
rather than present it exactly thereby keeping a liveliness in the work.
the techniques, I simply hope you feel as if you could be there!
I have enjoyed painting double portraits where I try to present the
relationship between the people in the moment.
