Kevin sparrow was born Chester 1950. He studied fine art for a short time at Chester School of Art. Originally an oil painter, he taught himself watercolour in the early 1980’s.
Kevin’s more traditional paintings of cityscapes and the landscapes of North Wales are a combination of ink line and watercolour, influenced by artists such as Ray Evans and the loose watercolours of John Blockley.
With such influences, he went on to find his own unique style.
Kevin’s other painting style is a mixture of semi realism and abstraction of the natural contours of the landscape and how nature and man meld.
He expresses the vibrant colours of nature with the combination of soft tones and strong colour blending, which is then drawn through with ink line.
Both of Kevin’s fabulous painting styles are represented in the Society’s current online exhibition.
