Jeremy Galton

Biography

Jeremy Galton RBA was born in 1949 and studied Fine Art at the City and Guilds of London School of Art. 

 

For many years he has been interested in landscape, endeavouring to capture the essence of a particular place at a particular time through his attention to colour as well as to careful drawing. He uses the same approach to still life which gives him the chance to analyse and record the texture of materials such as metal, glass and flower petals.

 

His distinctive paintings involve careful drawing and meticulous scrutiny of colour. Jeremy treats each picture simply as a record of what he sees in front of him but, hopefully, in such a way that the viewer will also be able to share his original observations. He believes that every part of  the painting is of equal importance so the background and peripheral areas are treated with the same consideration as the main subject.

 

As a member of the Royal Society of British Artists he exhibits annually at the Mall Galleries and other prestigious galleries, winning numerous awards along the way. He has held several one-man shows and has exhibited at high-profile events such as the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition. His paintings feature in a large number of private collections in the UK and abroad, including a number of well-known corporate clients.

 

Jeremy is a regular contributor for a number of magazines including The Artist and Artists and Illustrators. He is also the author of five art-instruction books, notably the best-selling ‘The Encyclopaedia of Oil Painting Techniques’, published by Search Press, which has now been in print for 30 years.
