Dick Hewitson

Painting & Drawing

Dick first painted in the mid-1960s, when it was a seminal event for him to encounter Peter Lanyon’s ‘Offshore’ in Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery.
He started painting in earnest in 2011, and now exhibits regularly. He exhibited in the RWA Annual Exhibition in 2014 and 2015, and in the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition 2016.
His paintings, mainly oils, often arise from interpretation of landscape, some recognisably ‘landscapes’, others less figurative, and some essentially abstract. Field sketches and drawings play an increasingly important role. Dick has lived in Dorset for over forty years, and this has had a significant impact on how and what he paints.
Dick’s website gives details of exhibitions.
