Visiting the LAF artists: Jonathan Trim – landscape painter
It was a beautiful sunny, frosty morning here, and I drove down to Leigh on Sea to visit landscape artist Jonathan Trim. He has a lovely studio at the bottom of his garden, with paintings all round, some hung, some stacked on shelves and on the floor.
I really admire his paintings, which are very evocative and atmospheric. At present he is working on some paintings of the Welsh mountains, as can be seen in the photo! It was lovely to see them close up, and see the techniques he uses.
We had a very enjoyable and wide ranging chat, discovering mutual ‘art heroes’ in Kurt Jackson and Ken Howard, and ending up talking about folk music!
Jonathan intends to paint some work especially for the Lexden Arts Festival, and will also be showing a range of other work, including smaller items like prints, and small books featuring images of his work, which I’m sure will be very popular. I can’t wait to see the paintings that he brings us!
