Figurative painter Ken Howard is best known for his portraits, studio interiors, and landscapes painted in London, Venice and Switzerland. Drawing ‘en plein air’ remains at the core of his practice.
This painting affectionately depicts the interior of Howard’s workplace in St. Clements, Cornwall, where he still regularly works from a life model. As in all of Howard’s paintings, the effect of light on the scene is of primary importance. It pours in through the window, casting shadows and reflections on the wooden floor and table, sensitively rendered by Howard in a myriad of colours.
Howard has exhibited extensively since his graduation from Hornsey School of Art in 1953. He has received numerous prizes and was president of the New English Arts Club from 1998 to 2003. He lives and works in London.
