Based in East Yorkshire, Martin Jones paints vibrant and compelling contemporary landscape paintings in his own distinctive style.
With a background in Art and Design Martin’s artistic flair was evident as a young boy, drawing and painting anything that was of interest.
His paintings are inspired by the land and sea of the Yorkshire county. Views of coastal seaside towns and harbour villages, rustic rural settings with nature in all it’s glory are all influences for his paintings.
Exploring the Yorkshire countryside or by the sea he collects ideas capturing the essence of that particular landscape in light, colour and composition, then returning to the Studio inspired by what he has seen ideas are sketched out ready for painting.
Martin’s website is a showcase for his talent in painting, offering two painting mediums of acrylic on box canvas, and pen and watercolour. His subjects are always based upon the county of Yorkshire and sometimes adds something to the painting to make you smile.
