Ben McLeod is based in the English Lake District and his move towards greater emphasis on the landscape in his painting has been heavily influenced by the native landscape around him. Working predominantly in oils his work is a response to the environment reflecting his travels not just in and around Cumbria but beyond. Like a visual diary the thick impasto paint is a physical response to open spaces and the effects of ever changing weather on land and sea.
"I am represented by a number of galleries but paintings are also kept back in the studio at times - where I also take classes. This site allows you to view my work and purchase directly any work available, as well as booking onto workshops or classes and buying what is an ever growing range of limited edition prints. Enjoy"
