John Eric Rothwell

Eric’s work is often in the traditional landscape painting style with a narrative of Northumbrian folklore. Recently he ventured into abstract landscapes, loosely studied from his local coastal photography, after walks with his dogs, Toots and Bessie. Eric tries to interact with colour relationships and swiftness of palette knife strokes to capture an intimate snapshot of the dramatic and sometimes peaceful, Northumbrian land. Eric has completed many different commissioned works including portraiture and digital design.
