Allan Green - South Hams Artist

Allan Green paints in oils and finds himself drawn to the Devon coast, estuaries and Dartmoor for inspiration and recreation. The changes in weather and season provide a never ending source of inspiration for his paintings. He is particularly fascinated by the play of light on water and is well known for his beautifully observed seascapes and his studies of the Salcombe, Kingsbridge and Dartmouth estuaries and dramatic Dartmoor landscapes. Recently he has also embarked on a series of nude studies and some larger,dramatic seascapes.

‘I paint subjects that excite me visually, in places I like to be. I use a digital camera more than a sketch book for speed. I try to be lucky enough to capture “the decisive moment” in Cartier-Bresson’s phrase, and these are the images I work from. I enjoy the actual business of painting, the balancing act between creating an intrinsically interesting and coherent surface and creating the illusion of space and depth therein. Each blank canvas or board is a fresh challenge.’

Allan is happy to accept commissions .
Trained as a teacher, he is always willing to discuss leading workshops and teaching art groups.
