Inspired by his local landscape, Lawrence's evocative paintings illustrate the power of nature.
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.”
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."
One word shouldn’t encapsulate 20 years of breathtaking art and countless hearts touched across the world, but that’s exactly what Lawrence Coulson’s new collection does. Behind Celebration is a story of talent, determination and inspiration that makes it an honour to toast the success of our longest-serving artist.
Since joining our publisher Washington Green Fine Art in 1999, Lawrence has introduced generations of collectors to an art form that has stood the test of time. In an age of throwaway art, fads and fleeting popularity, his beautiful landscapes have opened up viewers’ eyes to the gift of nature and made traditional painting contemporary again.
Come along and celebrate the spectacular work of Lawrence Coulson at our series of events.
Situated in the beautiful 'old town' on the border of Lincolnshire, Stamford has over 1000 years of history. Just a stone's throw from the beautiful 16th century Burghley House, our gallery is well worth a visit to view exhibitions by local, national and international artists.
With exciting appearances from Lawrence Coulson coming up later this year, the grand opening will be a fantastic opportunity to see exactly how a masterpiece is created from a blank canvas.
Lawrence will be in the gallery from 1-3pm on Saturday 3rd November, with a live painting session from 1.30pm. It's going to be the last painting session with Lawrence this year, a fantastic opportunity to gain some sneaky insider tips and chat to Lawrence about the techniques and inspirations behind his work!
