“Exploring the planet, a small box of paints, a few brushes and a rag, making marks with colour, seeing the beauty on offer…simply gratitude for life.” Leon Holmes
Leon is an international award-winning plein air artist, lecturer and ambassador. He paints on location, without the aid of photography, and uses these small studies as reference for larger studio works. He is regularly invited to exhibit and teach at events around the world, working alongside the elite of professional Plein Air Artists.
Painting in oil in the old masters’ style of impressionistic realism, he quickly captures natural light and colour to create paintings loaded with drama and beauty.
