Riches, Vivian

I am an impressionist painter of vibrant impressionistic landscapes and seascapes living in Kent. The focus of my work is on light, colour and atmospheric perspective using a mixture of oil paint and cold wax medium.  The buttery soft wax is made primarily of beeswax allowing me to build up many layers which I then scrape into to create depth, body, and exciting textural effects.  I want my paintings to have a strong sense of place and time, but also to stimulate the viewers imagination so that they feel they are actually there, engrossed in the moment, exploring their surroundings.
