Raymond Campbell - Still life
Raymond Campbell (1956-) Still life
Born in 1956 in Surrey, England, artist Raymond Campbell decided as a young boy to make painting his livelihood. He turned down an opportunity to formally study art, deciding to try on his own. By the age of 22, he had already developed a unique style. Subsequent travels throughout Europe studying the Old Masters influenced Campbell’s style, particularly, the early 17th century Dutch artists.
Done in oil, many Raymond Campbell paintings depict still life images, and often include fine wine, cheeses, and food. Other favourite topics in Raymond Campbell paintings include landscapes, especially seascapes.
