Andrew Sinclair Clarke’s paintings and drawings are the results of a lifelong passion to which he has committed dedication and study. He is an ardent lover and student of Classical Art and the Masters such as Leonardo, Raphael, Titian, Velazquez and Rembrandt. He experiments with and employs traditional techniques of under-painting and glazing in oils, as well as the use of perspective and the study of the figure. He also greatly enjoys putting his hand to other artistic media such as watercolour, pastels and print-making.
His favourite motifs are Biblical scenes and figures, mythology, portraiture, landscapes and architecture. He has illustrated books, including an edition of “Don Quixote of La Mancha”, and a new edition of “The Stranger in Reading”, an early 19th Century historical narrative on that town of his native Berkshire.
He travels widely, likes to visit the artistic centres of Europe, has spent many years living Spain, has lived and worked in metropolitan and rural areas of China and currently works running the art department in a large international school in Saudi Arabia. His home is in Cantabria, Spain, with his family.
He studied art at the Berkshire College of Art and Design and the Chelsea College of Art and Design. Images of other artworks are available upon request, and the artist will also upon your commission paint or draw portraits, landscapes or architectural scenes of your locality, Biblical, mythological, commemorative or themed scenes of your wishes.
