Lawrence Coulson

Born: Cambridge
Lives and works: South Lincolnshire
Awards: Fine Art Trade Guild (2002)
Exhibitions: Halcyon Gallery (2004)
“Evolving technique by experimentation (and occasionally an alchemy of accident and good luck!) is the goal of any artist.”

Inspired by his local landscape, Lawrence's evocative paintings illustrate the power of nature.

Inspiration

As the son of the successful landscape painter Gerald Coulson, Lawrence was encouraged from a young age to explore his artistic talents. Over the last 30 years, he has traversed and reflected upon the elements to develop his own distinctive style.

Lawrence begins with a simple pencil line to denote the horizon before mentally mapping out the rest of the composition. Following this, he applies oil paint before blending it with his fingers and then again with a fine brush. He repeats this process until his painting does justice to the landscape in his mind.

Lawrence says: “The natural light that appears as dawn breaks or dusk falls is my favourite light to capture. Everything is in a state of flux: shadows travel, and perspectives shift. My work focuses on contrast and the moments of hope and optimism shining through.”

Inside the world of Lawrence Coulson

Lawrence begins with a simple pencil line to denote the horizon, before mapping out the rest of the composition in his head. Following this, he applies colour in oil across the panel before blending it with his fingers and then again with a fine brush. He repeats this process until he achieves the desired effect and his painting does justice to the landscape he sees in his mind. 

He adds: "I still take immense enjoyment from gathering my own reference shots, and I have been known to hare off with my camera at a moment’s notice if I spot a particularly striking sunset from my studio window. 

"I often visit my cottage on the north Norfolk coast for a change of scenery. My heart still beats for the incomparable landscapes of Britain and belongs to our fair and pleasant land."
