Artist's Statement
I aspire to create "Visible Feelings" that can be shared by those who care to pause and wonder. I call upon my Life's Experiences to inspire me and I let the feeling emerge in my work.I have been amazed, and sometimes disturbed, by what I have learnt about myself through my paintings. I am so much richer for knowing myself better.
Alan Brain


Alan Brain - Paintings in Watercolour and Art Teacher - Chobham Surrey Artist

Artist's Background
Alan Brain discovered painting about twelve years ago when he attended a water colouring class with some friends. It led to a change of direction that he has never regretted. Today, his unique style, combined with spiritual awareness, produces works of unusual vibrancy and colour. As a former pilot and constant flyer, the immensity of the heavens with its changing moods has fascinated Alan. It features in many of his paintings where he manages to capture the vastness and mysteriousness of space.
His early years in Japan may have enhanced his bold view of landscapes and skies and you can see in his work the influence of wonderful open spaces to be found in places such as Wales, Arizona, New Mexico and Africa, all of which Alan visits regularly. However, such harmony with nature cannot be taught, it is an intrinsic part of the artist that we are fortunate to glimpse.
Alan exhibits several times a year in and around his home in Chobham Surrey, England. His work has been accepted for several prestigious exhibitions in London including the Guild of Aviation Artists and the Society of Marine Artists. Alan also applies his teaching skills (he was a Flying Instructor) and helps his fellow artists through his course called “Find You Own Painting Direction” and by One to One tuition.
He believes it is important to give something back to those less fortunate than ourselves and is a strong supporter of the Samaritans charity; a percentage from his painting sales are contributed to his local branch.
