Every environment lends itself to a different medium, Oils, Acrylics and Watercolours have their own distinct feel and need to be considered carefully before starting a painting.
- "York Based British painter Richard Stuttle isolates the intense, fleeting beauty of extreme sports in superbly crisp, spectacular and often-vertiginous oil compositions. From pristine slopes in the French Alps, where he spends winters painting and snowboarding, to gritty city streets where he follows skateboarders and parkour practitioners, Stuttle alternates between nearly photographic hyperrealism and a vividly lit and stylised aesthetic evocative of Expressionist woodblock prints."
- "I really enjoyed working with Richard, his hands on approach really helped. He offered insights and techniques that made complete sense, I felt my painting improved during the courses."
- "Richard produced some stunning artwork for me with vibrant colours and exceptional attention to detail. He is inspired by the world around him and this reflects on all of his finished artwork. I would definitely recommend Richard for commissions as well as his gallery work, all of which should be more widely seen and appreciated!"
- "Just a quick line to say how much we enjoyed our workshop with you last Tues at Bridlington Spa. We loved your supportive approach to teaching new ways of thinking about our art practice - a very valuable day which will enable us to move our work forward. The concept of ‘story’ is now firmly embedded."
