Alan Stratford is a landscape painter who works in oil paint to produce atmospheric and emotional responses to his natural surroundings. Through a unique handling of medium, Alan creates paintings full of feeling which capture certain times of day in specific landscapes in varying weathers. By painting the place he inhabits, Alan's work has a depth of character to it as he knows his subject matter so very well.
My real passion has always been painting. In 2017 after selling the gallery I owned, I made the move to Cornwall to paint full time. Inspired by the beauty of the Cornish landscape and the everchanging drama of the sea and sky, I endeavour to create works which are both evocative and atmospheric. I love to explore new subject matters and painting styles, either figurative or abstract, continually striving for the perfect balance of aesthetic appeal and artistic merit. Alan Stratford.
