Laurence Belbin – ‘Sherborne Abbey from Long Street’, oil on canvas 20” x 16”
Sherborne based Laurence Belbin is a painter of light and atmosphere. He has a fascination with sunlight, especially on water. His paintings of Venice, the beach and the sea are full of light. His landscapes and interiors also sparkle and his handling of paint is both sensitive and expressive. Most of his work is painted on location, capturing the light and colour of the moment. He is currently working on paintings capturing the rhythm of the undulating Dorset landscape using line and colour.
Laurence exhibits in Cornwall, Guernsey and occasionally in London. He also shows in various exhibitions in the South and South West, and is a regular exhibitor in Dorset Arts Week. He was elected to the South West Academy of Fine and Applied Arts as an Associate member in 2017.
His Sherborne studio is open by appointment.
