Richard Grinter

I studied Art at Amersham School of Art in 1988 and followed this with a career in Graphic Design always maintaining my passion for drawing and painting along the way. Moving to beautiful Bath inspired me to move from life drawing back to ‘en plein air’ painting. Bath has the architecture, light and atmosphere any artist would fall in love with and there is so much to paint. The enthusiasm of the public when painting constantly amazes me.

There is so much passion for painting, seeing an artist set up seems to fascinate people of all walks of life, be it an unlucky homeless soul or a Royal Crescent resident. The response is always so constructive, we all have a point of view, be it with words or paint and all are equally valid. I recommend street painting to anyone and everyone and I love passing on the enjoyment in my classes.
