John Somerscales has enjoyed a long career in design and illustration.
Now a full time artist, he has developed his skills as a painter and teacher.
Working in watercolour and oils, much of his work is partially or completely executed on location in an attempt to capture the light and its effect on the landscape.
John teaches adult evening classes in watercolour techniques and gives talks and demonstrations to local art groups.
He is a member of Oxford Art Society and has had several articles on painting technique published in The Artist magazine
John is happy to accept commissions.
