Perfect Day Paintings that speak to your heart
Howard Flanagan is well known for his highly detailed works of art both at home and internationally, especially for his Clipper Race themed paintings. The Clipper Round the World Yacht Race has for the second, consecutive year commissioned him to capture the spirit of this year’s adventure, in a series of paintings. Now, returning to the Courtyard Gallery for the second time, following his hugely successful solo exhibitions, last year in Liverpool and here in Lyme Regis. This time, his exhibition is centred on exploring our atmospheric natural world, from sunrise to sunset, capturing the essence of what makes a perfect day. Howard has a great understanding of perspective and depth when painting the awe-inspiring characteristics of the natural world. Working mainly in Watercolour and Pastel, Howard’s style is unique; you feel drawn to explore every detail of each painting.
“When painting, I am drawn back again and again to nature; our ever changing skies, with shafts of light dancing upon waves. Our stunning landscapes and beautiful flora and fauna often leave me speechless at their beauty and I am inspired to explore elements of light, colour and texture. Hopefully, these are paintings that will speak to your heart.”
