‘Our Patio’


Lovely painting,

Bright and lively - really very good!

Lovely painting and you can your background of drawing skills

Oooo love this style you have Shaun, great work!!

A lovely piece of work Shaun and your drawing skills are very evident here. Must say I prefer your looser approach of your recent work.

Beautiful Shaun, so precise and detailed, excellent example. As Carole mentioned, I prefer your “softer attitude”.

Many thanks for the positive comments. Carole and Fiona - yes I prefer how I approach painting nowadays. I don’t have the patience to portray all the details I included in this artwork.

It takes real skill to make a domestic scene look this interesting. Great use of colour.

Superb skill here, as usual, Shaun.

Good style and use of beautiful colour Shaun,

Beautiful painting

Many thanks - Thalia, Andrew, John and Anne.

Hang on Studio Wall

Pastel on sanded paper. 28x20ins * I have discovered this,(and others!), stored away in the loft space since we moved into our current house in 2004. When I was at art college in 1960’s, the importance of drawing was drubbed into us. I have always gone along with this but my attitude has softened as I have got older. I have posted this painting as my example of drawing.

About the Artist
Shaun Byatt

I try to achieve vibrant colours in my paintings. I work intuitively with large flat brushes - I also try not to overwork my pictures and they are often completed in two sittings. I use good quality acrylics because of their excellent pigment content. I like to interpret what i see in front of me…
