John Neale (contemporary)
He has been painting professionally now for many years and has had many successful exhibitions in Bond Street and Albemarle Street in London and in the provinces, as well as New York - and New Zealand. He has worked in many countries in Europe, also Australia, New Zealand and the USA. His work can be seen at The Estuary Gallery, Russell Court, Fore Street, Salcombe, Devon TQ8 8BS, where he resides in the summer months. He lives part of the year in Stratford upon Avon and for most of the winter he goes trout fishing and painting in New Zealand.
John considers himself an artist working in the English tradition, but greatly influenced by the French Impressionists, he paints mostly in oil and watercolour. He enjoys the challenge of painting in the open air and particularly in capturing the varied effects of sunlight and shadows. John sees himself as very fortunate to have had guidance from the late Edward Seago, an artist considered by many to be the greatest English landscape painter since John Constable. At one time, John's studio was a narrow boat which featured in a television film about his work made by the BBC. John has been a regular exhibitor at John Noott Galleries in Broadway in the Cotswolds for the past twenty years.
John has also been represented by galleries in London, the provinces, USA and New Zealand.
