The style of Trevor Lingard
Trevor Lingard was born in the Lancashire mill town of Accrington, UK.
He lives in the village of Sabden nestled in the historic witch country of Pendle Hill by the Ribble Valley.
The subjects Trevor paints are varied, you can find scenes in the street and it may be in Machester city or Venice or whatever nice place you can think about. Or you can see a scene in a beach, in a theater, in a “gondola” or a market.
But you always will find people painted, and maybe people, characters are the center of his painting, figures walkin in a park, a crowded street, the beach, sitting waiting or playing some sport.
What you will find is a wonderful loose style to paint figures.
We can find some influence of well known artists such as Trevor Chamberlain, John Yardley and Ken Howard, but obviusly Trevor Lingard has his own and recognizable style, this fact has consolidated his reputation and we can find his watercolors in galleries, exhibitions and private collections.
Ah Venice… what a wonderful place to visit, to walk by the narrow streets and alleys, to sit at one of the St. Mark Square (Piazza San Marcos) to drink a coffee and listen to the music and enjoy the musicians there. And why not, to have this scene painted by Trevor.
