Paintings by Robert Ward
A Snapshot intro
I live with my wife Gina in Pembrokeshire, Wales, I was however born and raised in the old heavily industrial "Black Country" of the West Midlands (named for its once heavy layers of grime during Victorian times) the folk that live there are some of the nicest people you could ever meet.
I have painted and drawn since my earliest days and am completely self taught never having had the opportunity or inclination to take instruction, instead I first learned the simple basic rules of oil paint, fat over lean etc, and most importantly how to mix paint without it turning into mud ie to not loose the brilliance that oil paint is capable of, sadly such luminescense apparently is not fashionable today, but hey, its my way or nothing!
I sold and exhibited quite a lot in the seventies to early nineties, then gave it up for a good few years in order to do other things, restarting only when I retired a few years ago.
My paintings cover a wide range of subjects, normally things that interest me at the time, all are in oil and generally illustrative.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions that you may have.
