Paul Hopkinson North Devon, United Kingdom




I started drawing when I was knee high to a grasshopper but didn't pick up my first brush until the age of twelve. This was when I first started to paint in oils with my Uncle, Peter Hopkinson who is a fantastic Artist. We ventured into the Derbyshire countryside with canvases and easels. For many years I have painted commissions for many customers where the paintings varied from portraits to landscapes and animals, completed in watercolour, oils, acrylics and graphite. I now paint as a full time artist and even though it can be difficult sometimes I love every minute of it, even though the time always seem to go so quickly when I paint. I also write painting tutorials for The Leisure Painter magazine and have also made a DVD on how to paint a Harvest Mouse, showing and demonstrating the techniques and equipment I use. I live with in North Devon, UK where i paint from home.My partner and I spend most of our weekends birdwatching around the Devon countryside visiting various nature reserves, taking photos which I later use to paint from.
