Paul Hopkinson I started drawing when I was knee high to a grasshopper but didn’t pick up my first brush until the age of twelve. This was when I first started to paint in oils with my Uncle, Peter Hopkinson who is a fantastic Artist. We ventured into the Derbyshire countryside with canvases and easels.

PaulHopkinsonPhotoApart from painting with my Uncle I have had no form of training, everything you see is through years of practice and the love I put into all my paintings.

For many years I have painted commissions for many customers where the paintings varied from portraits to landscapes and animals, completed in watercolour, oils, acrylics and graphite.

I now paint as a full time artist and even though it can be difficult sometimes I love every minute of it, even though the time always seem to go so quickly when I paint.

I have a lovely son who was 17 years old on 24th February 2016, an ever growing teenager who has a good intelligence with the wit and cheek to go with it!NutMegPaintersOnline

I now live with my partner Jo in North Devon, UK. We spend most of our weekends birdwatching around the Devon countryside visiting various nature reserves, taking photos which I later use to paint from.

When I am asked what would be my preferred subjects I would say without a doubt birds and animals! I love trying to get the life within the eyes in hope to bring the painting to some form of realism.
