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.
For many years I have undertaken commissions. The paintings varying from portraits to landscapes and animals, completed in watercolour, oils, acrylics and graphite.
I now paint as a full time artist and have nearly 40 years of experience. I love every minute of my work, though the time always seem to go very quickly when I paint!
I live in North Devon, UK and spend many weekends out and about in the Devon countryside..
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.
