Welcome to Brian Baxter’s website
My paintings are collected and exhibited widely, with over 700 held in private collections throughout Europe, North America and Australia. They form part of the permanent collection of the House of Lords (see Art UK) and other bodies.
I am known for my watercolours but also enjoy working in mixed media, pastels, gouache, acrylics and oils.
The subjects that most delight me are wildlife and domestic animals.
I love capturing the essence of living things, vibrant with energy. Through the handling of pigment, the energy of the brushstrokes and mark-making, I seek to convey the spirit of the living creature.
These works tie in with my interests in environmental matters. They treat other creatures as having a status worthy of our interest and concern.
I also paint flowers, still lives, landscapes and people.
Most of my works measure in the region of 38cm x 48cm unframed, landscape or portrait, and are on paper.
By clicking on the Pinterest icon at the bottom of each picture section you will gain access to a more comprehensive display of my paintings in that category.
