A Painting a Day from Julian Sutherland-Beatson

Based in Sussex, Julian paints the landscape, coastline and urban areas in a style described recently as 'contemporary realism'.

He studied illustration and printmaking at Eastbourne College of Art for four years before embarking on a career in graphic design and illustration.

In 2004, two of his paintings were purchased by the House of Lords to complement an existing collection of period travel paintings and he has been painting and exhibiting in the UK and throughout Europe ever since.

Julian started creating a daily painting since 2008 and two years later, exhibited a collection of 200 of them at Glyndebourne Opera House. He has created a painting a day at Glyndebourne during the Glyndebourne Festival each year ever since.

He had two paintings included in the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition last year and recently won a prize at the annual PURE ARTS exhibition at the Powermills Hotel in Battle, East Sussex.

"The main theme of my work in the recent past has been the marking and celebration of a specific time and place," says Julian.

"I aim to mark the changing mood and seasons reflected in the world around me."

"A British Summer" ends on Saturday 2nd September.
