Graham Webber ROI AIEA EAGMA

Born in Colchester in 1980, Graham still lives and works in the area. He paints on location around Mersea Island, Flatford and Dedham and into Suffolk.

Graham works quickly, initially applying broad sweeps of semi-transparent colour and tone to a panel using a cloth to wipe out highlights and establish shadows.
He then adds details and brings the composition together.

Graham likes to paint direct from life, in order to capture the light there and then. Inspiration often comes from the shapes and tones created by light rather than the subject matter itself.

Graham has exhibited at the Royal Institute of Oil Painters annual exhibition, the Royal Society of British Artists exhibition at the Mall Galleries in London, and at the Lynn Painter-Stainers Prize Exhibition.
