Julian Smith

Paintings in acrylics and oils on canvas. Usually these are deep box canvas with painted sides with no need for framing. More recent works are on thinner stretched canvas requiring a frame (see descriptions).

Located in Kent in England, Julian paints a wide variety of subjects in a distinctive style, where strong use of colour and contrast predominate. Using both coarse and fine detail, paint applied by palette knife and brushwork, thickly applied paint and glazes, a variety of finishes are achieved.

Julian has undertaken commissioned portraits, and also worked on a series of famous faces and a number of nude studies. His wide variety of subject matter extends from wildlife and pet portraits to sailing ships and seascapes, and a favourite series includes city landscapes featuring the beautiful cities of Prague and Venice. Julian has sold paintings from galleries and shown in local exhibitions.

More recently Julian has concentrated on the human form, and has life drawing and painting experience.
