“A thing of beauty is a joy forever:
Its loveliness increases, it will never
Pass into nothingness”. John Keats
Welcome to the website for the fine art created by Richard Prutton. His objective is to create works of great beauty in his own classical individual style which will be treasured by their owners for a long time. Pieces are created both at outdoor locations in Greater Vancouver and in the studio. He is inspired by the splendor of British Columbia's amazing scenery and tries to capture it in landscape paintings with contemporary realism and some impressionism. Richard also creates figurative and portrait images showing personality and charm. The works of Singer-Sargent and Sorolla are a source of inspiration for his oil paintings.
Pieces may be viewed by clicking at top of page and purchased by sending an e-mail to the artist. The dimensions shown for all pieces are the size of the image, exclusive of the frame.
Commissions are welcomed.
