Richard Young

I am a UK national and Fellow of the Royal Society for Arts. I turned to commercial fine art in 2003 and have developed my own personal technique ever since.
The style of my artwork is towards contemporary realism, inspired by the romanticism of my favourite post renaissance Masters. My compositions are towards carefully composed anonymity of the subject, rather than characteristic individual representation, capturing passion and emotion of the subjects. I simply adore light and emphasise dramatic lighting to add depth and create an atmosphere. I paint with a knife and limited colour palette, mixing only on the canvas!
