Robert Brindley RSMA

Born in Burton on Trent, Robert moved to Whitby, in 1992 and became a full time painter.

Working in Watercolour, Oil, and Pastel, Robert's inspiration is the challenge of capturing light and atmosphere in a contemporary impressionistic style.

He paints, mainly landscape and coastal scenery, around his home in North Yorkshire, and on his annual trip to Venice. Other places of inspiration have been Cornwall, the South Coast, Wales, Scotland, Greece, France & India.

In 1997 Robert was elected a member Royal Society of Marine Artists and was subsequently featured on Tyne Tees Television's "A Day In The Life Of ..." series.

He is the current Archivist for the Royal Society of Marine Artists.

Robert's first book, entitled 'Painting Boats & Coastal Scenery' was published by Crowood Press in August 2009, 'Painting in Pastel's in September 2010 and 'Painting Landscapes in Oils' published in February 2012.

His work has been featured in several publications, including The Artist, The Artist & Illustrator, Pratique des Arts and 'How to paint Watercolour Landscapes from Photographs' to name a few.

Robert has instructional DVDs produced by Townhouse Films; 'Successful Summer Landscapes In Watercolour', 'Painting Atmospheric Watercolour Landscapes', 'Oil Sketching On Location' and 'Atmospheric Coastal Watercolour Landscape'.
