Don Carr

I am a self taught painter based in Chester. I paint mostly landscapes, both rural and urban, and usually scenes from the North West be it Chester, Liverpool or Manchester. I am particularly interested in painting familiar, 'every day' scenes which people can relate to or recognise be it shops, industrial estates, petrol stations and town centres.

I usually record a scene using my camera phone and then a small sketch that allows me to form my own composition with my eye. My goal when painting is to try to capture the sense of atmosphere of a scene through light and colour and in a way, document those places around me . I paint mostly in watercolour however I use very little water apart from the initial washes as I prefer the effect of heavier, bolder brush work in my images.
