Paint like Lawrence

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. 

"My heart still beats for the incomparable landscapes of Britain and belongs to our fair and pleasant land."
