John Whittaker - Artist of Oil Paintings
John Whittaker is an artist who works in oil paint on canvas. He lives in Tilehurst, on the edge of Reading, Berkshire - not far from the River Thames and the Berkshire Downs.
He specialises in oil paintings of landscapes, trees, gardens, foliage and floral subjects.
In his art, he likes to exploit the use of colour as a means of expression. Some of his work is quite 'representational' in style, whilst other paintings are quite 'impressionistic' - as in the painting below - showing particularly the influence of the work of Claude Monet.
