The Man Playing A Harp Guitar

I came across this gentleman in southern France playing an instrument I initially playing took to be a run-of-the-mill guitar. A small crowd had gathered around him during, what I considered, his virtuoso public performance. And then I was a little taken aback when the distinct sound of the guitar magically became harp like. 
 

 I immediately thought the event worthy of recording in another artistic medium.

Artist John Bell has been producing original paintings, in a variety of mediums for over 50 years. John developed his skills whilst illustrating books. In more recent years he has adopted a style of watercolour painting pioneered by the Newlyn School artist Walter Langley in the19th century. Today his paintings are usually watercolour based, enhanced through layers and then have finishing touches in a variety of mixed medium until he creates the desired effect.

His art is very popular with greetings card manufacturers with over 300 of his paintings currently appear on greetings cards worldwide.

As greetings card companies normally only purchase a limited copyright license to use his art, John has an extensive selection of original art, signed prints and cards he intends to offer for purchase in this July's Cambridge Open Studio event at a substantial discounted price.

John still accepts commissions that he produces with a ‘total satisfaction guarantee’. 

He holds a Master of Education Degree and is available to provide talks on art related topics.

In 2020 five of John's paintings were accepted for major exhibitions. This year his art has been accepted for the renowned Royal Society of British Artists Exhibition 2021 and The Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours 2021 both to be held at The Mall Galleries, The Mall, London SW1.
