Speaking of his latest collection, Lawrence Coulson said: “The idea behind my latest paintings was to encapsulate all that I have become as an artist over the last 20 years, highlighting subject matter, technique and palette.

“It is a celebration of a journey that has had high and low points, has taken me to amazing locations and introduced me to some lovely people. It is a celebration of the beautiful world around us. It is a celebration of art. It is a celebration of life.”

The event was billed as an opportunity for art fans to help them to learn about the ideas and inspiration behind the Celebration collection.

Known for his eye for detail and use of light and shadow to create contrast, Coulson has been capturing landscapes in the style of the Old Masters since 1999, when he was signed by Washington Green.

Through his work he seeks to bring forth the natural beauty and meaning of the simple things around us.
