Nat Young

Nat Young started painting in the early seventies when he moved to East Anglia. He paints using watercolour, gouache, oils and mixed media. His current work is mainly landscapes, characterised by bold colour and painterly, dynamic gestures giving an impression both of the subject and his artistic response to it.

As his confidence has grown in using his materials, he has shown more willingness to break the conventional methods of applying pigment to paper and board. This has resulted in some of his most successful work on the lines of abstract impressionism, whilst still retaining the sense of place.

He is an active member and chairman of the Colchester Art Society and an art correspondent for the Essex County Standard Newspaper.
