Coloured Pencil Artist


Richard C O Lovesey

My interest in art began when I decided to capture Lincolnshire's rich aviation heritage in a series of graphite aircraft drawings. Having never drawn seriously before, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that I possessed  a talent for it. This, coupled with positive encouragement from family and friends, inspired me to utilise my ability to provide people with a unique product at an affordable price.

During 1999, I progressed away from graphite and began to experiment with colour, and have never looked back. With no formal training in art or drawing, I have mastered my own unique approach and technique through practical experience, using only the finest quality materials from Derwent, Faber-Castell and Caran d' Ache.

I work from home, in the historic market town of Louth, which sits in the heart of Lincolnshire's rich rural landscape at the foot of the rolling hills of the Lincolnshire Wolds. This area is designated an area of outstanding natural beauty and I find it a very inspiring place from which to work.

The majority of my commissioned work takes the form of portraits. Children and pets are by far the most popular requests, although I like the opportunity to consider almost any subject. I work solely from photographs because this approach allows me to take the necessary time over a picture, ensuring that I can achieve the best results.

I am a member of the Fine Art Trade Guild. All Guild members observe a Code of Ethics which ensures integrity in all transactions and the highest standards of professionalism and customer service at all times. I am also a member of the UK Coloured Pencil Society (UKCPS) and a Gold member of the Society for All Artists (SAA).

Recently, I have developed a desktop publishing service through which I am able to provide customers with a range of products which can be fully customised to meet their needs. My 'no minimum order' policy offers customers the opportunity to order very small quantities from just 1 - 100!
