Andrew Hird is a painter of city and maritime landscapes.
He works in an impressionistic style primarily sketching from life with pencil or oil paints
to gather images for larger studio paintings. All his work is driven by these small plein air studies, they capture the immediate atmosphere
and energy of the environment which he then develops onto larger canvases.
This exhibition features paintings of favourite locations around London plus some more unusual views of the city, work from visits to Venice and Tuscany, and views of the waterfront of the Isle of Wight.
Andrew has won various awards and his work is becoming increasingly collected.
He has exhibited at the Mall Galleries and the Royal Opera Arcade in central London, at the Chelsea Art Society and Patchings Arts Festival, at Kendalls Fine Art in Cowes, and with the Royal Society of Marine Artists.
