Water is the driving force of all nature.**
In Richard Harpum’s acrylic paintings we get to see the beauty, power and importance of the sea, rivers and lakes. Inspired by his numerous travels across the world, he takes us on a fascinating journey, perfectly capturing the calmness, the ripples and waves, rock formations, magnificent views, the fantastic way in which sunshine hits the water, its reflective qualities and mystery. If you study his works, you’ll also discover his preference for using the golden ratio (Phi – 1:1.618). These bodies of water that so greatly influence and affect our lives are presented in scenes driving our industry or bringing us joy and relaxation: children playing on a beach, cormorant fishermen, Oscar the dog, boats, bridges and the incredibly beautiful Mont Saint-Michel are the perfect examples of not only our beneficial relationship with nature and its driving force, but also our great resilience and accomplishments.
