Welsh landscape artist Chris Richards lives and works in the village of Ystradgynlais in the beautiful upper Swansea Valley.

Chris creates oil paintings of landscapes from all across Wales, from the vast beauty of epic skies and sweeping vistas to more subtle scenes that capture the allure of Welsh forests and rivers.

His original paintings are available for sale.

Hot Off The Easel

I want viewers of my work to experience not only the awe and wonder but also the sense of peace and tranquillity I’ve felt at being present in the scenes I paint. I hope my paintings convey the magic of Wales and inspire others to take time out and explore for themselves.

“The landscape affects the human psyche – the soul, the body and the innermost contemplations – like music. Every time you feel nature deeper you resonate better with her, finding new elements of balance and freedom.”

Art Blog

My blog is where I share my thoughts, process, and new paintings. I also discuss art in general, particularly the creative struggle as an artist.

As an emerging artist, there are plenty of things to learn and I share my successes and failures here.
