Paul Talbot- Greaves

Holmfirth, West Yorkshire

I am a professional landscape painter and I work in watercolour and acrylic. Many of my subjects are sought amongst the moors and hills of my native West Yorkshire and beyond. Throughout my painting life I have been made a companion of the International Guild of Artists, An Associate of the British Watercolour Society, A Professional Associate and Advisory Panellist of the SAA, president of the Halifax Art Society, as well as an Advisory panellist for Artists and Illustrators magazine. I won the Pennine Wealth management award in 2013 for Best in show at Holmfirth Artweek and my work has been exhibited as part of the Sunday Times watercolour competition in 2013 and 2015.I regularly contribute to the Artist Magazine and have four practical art books published to date - Watercolour for starters (David & Charles 2004), 30 Minute Landscapes (Walter Foster USA 2008), 30 Minute Landscapes in Watercolour (Harper Collins 2009), Landscapes in Watercolour (Crowood Press 2009).I have been teaching and demonstrating watercolour and acrylic painting for the past 25 years.
