The art of John Yardley

£19.99

Product description

John Yardley is one of Britain's contemporary Impressionists, with a rare ability to convey all the atmosphere of a scene with a few well-placed brushstrokes. In the few years since he gave up a career in banking to paint full time, his reputation has grown rapidly and his pictures are shown in galleries and private collections across the country, with a number of his exhibitions selling out in hours.;In this comprehensive collection of the artist's work, Ron Ranson, himself a watercolourist and teacher, provides evidence that Yardley is a worthy successor to Edward Seago. He has selected a wide range of subject matter, from sunlit gardens and Italian piazzas to cool, understated interiors, still lifes and flower paintings. In every one, the artist's powers of observation and his ability to capture the essential elements and spirit of his subject are apparent.;In his own style, Ron Ranson describes Yardley's momentous change of career and examines his motivation and his simple yet effective techniques. His book provides an introduction to the work of a rare talent.
