Robert Greenhalf

Robert Greenhalf SWLA

Robert was born in 1950 at Haywards Heath, Sussex, England. He studied at Eastbourne and Maidstone Colleges of Art, graduating in 1971 with a Diploma in Art and Design in Graphics.

Robert works mainly in Watercolour, Oils, Woodcut and Drypoint. The Drypoints and some of the Woodcuts are printed in black and hand-coloured with Watercolour, whilst others involve the cutting and printing of a separate block for each colour.

His subjects are mainly Wildlife, Domestic Animals, and Landscape. He places great emphasis upon observing and sketching in the field and his Watercolours are frequently made directly from life. This approach lends a lively spontaneity and authenticity to the work, which is often difficult to achieve in the studio.

Robert was elected a Member of the Society of Wildlife Artists 1981 and a member of the Royal Society of British Artists in 1982
