The Artist - Laurence Belbin SWAc Assoc
Born in Romsey Hampshire Laurence is self taught through his own observations with guidance and ‘tips’ from other artists on the way. He began drawing and painting at a very early age. A full time artist since 1989, he works mainly in oil. He paints ‘plein air’ all year round concentrating on light, line and colour. Laurence believes in traditional draughtsmanship as a basis to work from but is happy to manipulate and distort reality to achieve the result he seeks.He has exhibited at the RWA, plus many shows at the Mall Galleries, London and throughout the South West in mixed and individual shows.
