Based in United Kingdom
Hello Im Brian Halton and for the last 25 years I have lived in the wilds of West Yorkshire where I have a small, modest studio/gallery. After teaching art for a number of years up to A level standard I now paint full time. I find inspiration in most subjects – landscapes, cityscapes, seascapes, sport, animals etc . Commissioned work has been a large part of how I make a living but I don’t do as many now and try and concentrate on painting subjects that interest me.
I use a variety of materials, oils, acrylics, watercolour and mixed media but work primarily in pastel on sanded board.
Pastels suit the way I work – I can get intricate detail or expressive movement, huge choice of colours, no drying time, no cleaning, they will never fade or crack and working on a sanded board they really bite into the surface. They are easy to transport and also photograph brilliantly for future prints.
Thank you for visiting my store and if you would further information on any of the paintings please contact me and I will reply quickly.
