Artist Profile: Rod Perkins
I have had no formal artistic training but I have painted in my spare time for many years. Following a long career in the Water Industry, I now devote much of my time to my watercolour, acrylic and mixed media painting.
Much of my inspiration comes from the changing moods of nature, which I attempts to catch in my landscapes and seascapes, and from the texture and ‘hidden’ shapes found in natural forms such as tree bark and rocks. I enjoy experimenting with a variety of techniques and bases to add texture and interest to finished paintings.
My style, which continues to emerge and change, has been influenced by the work of the late John Blockley, Michael Morgan and Kurt Jackson
