Simon Watson - Artist


About me

I have been an artist all my life, it's just part of who I am.  I paint what I see around me, landscapes, people, places ... you name it, I paint it.  I mainly work in oils on canvas but also paint water colours and produce sketches.


Living on the Somerset Levels, I am surrounded by beautiful countryside.  I like to get out walking with my faithful black labrador and take my easel or camera to capture the images I see around me.  I am always looking for that perfect light that illuminates the landscape in an unusual way.  


Over the years I have been through periods that have seen me concentrate on producing work of steam trains, landrovers and vintage cars - another of my interests.  


I am always pleased to take on commissions.   In the last year I have been asked to complete a number of family paintings - a beautiful bride on her wedding day, a child on a first day at school, a portrait of cousins for their grandmothers birthday - all of which I have been delighted to do.


I exhibit locally often with other local artists.  I hope you enjoy looking at my work.  If you are interested in buying any or would like to enquire about a commission please feel free to contact me.
