Artist's Statement

John Hughes is an artist with a lifetime's experience in art education. He trained at Cambridge School of Art and Goldsmiths College in London. Known in Norfolk for his watercolours of the "Sea Henge", one is in the collection at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, King's Lynn, along with his painting of Hunstanton Cliffs. Recently another painting of the "Sea Henge" was chosen by the EDP to illustrate an iconic image of a Norfolk Historical Artifact.
His coastal watercolours are a reconstruction of the formal elements in the landscape, based upon careful observation of the changing light conditions.

John Hughes has exhibited in numerous exhibitions, had three solo shows and been successful in several major London painting competitions. A finalist in the Sunday Times Watercolour Competition; Chairman's prize in the Laing Seascape and Landscape Competition; the RWS open competition in 2006 and 2007 as well as exhibiting in the Mall Galleries on several occasions.

John teaches a variety of adult classes and courses, which are not merely skills based, but endeavor to improve the students' understanding and knowledge of the artistic process. He is available for talks, demonstrations and workshops.
