About Russell D Pulford
Nature and our environment is the motivation behind my landscape painting. Our environment needs to be managed with great care, it is heart breaking to see the continual lack of respect shown by so many for something so important and beautiful. I hope my work provides a reminder of an environment in better times without human kinds woeful footprint.
There are so many beautiful places to visit and paint. I have many favourite places.
How do I start? Well it's simple. I have either photographic references from visits to particular places or perhaps supplied by a client.
Painting for me is a form of meditation, I am transported to the subject that I am working on. I am reminded of the time, the feeling and in particular the realisation that although we are present for such a short time, individually and collectively we can make a critically positive impact on our environment.
How would I like viewers of my artwork to respond? Positively of course, I would hope that their curiosity is aroused and that they are enticed by the different textures which hold they're attention as they find themselves in the heart of the work.
