Geoff Kersey

Living and working in the Peak District, it’s no surprise that many of Geoff’s atmospheric paintings feature the diverse and beautiful landscape of the region, with its meandering rivers, steep dales and valleys, farms and villages.

Geoff's traditional style of painting aims to capture the essence of the subject. Loose enough to be atmospheric, yet containing just enough detail to be both accurate and satisfying on closer more detailed inspection, his intuitive use of colour in bold flowing washes, is underpinned by his firm grasp of perspective and draughtsmanship, complemented by a strong sense of place.

Geoff has written articles for The Artist and Illustrator, and Paint Magazines. His first book was published in summer 2004 Details are available on this website. Geoff has created a number of DVD’s, one entitled ”Improving your skies in watercolour” plus 2 further titles and accompanying course notes entitled ‘Creating Depth and Distance in your Paintings’.
