Patrick Prentice is an award winning fine artist originating from Glasgow and now with a studio practice based in the East Midlands. As a young artist, Prentice gained a summer travelling scholarship to Italy. This started his love for travel and a search for that special light that brings the magic to any subject, whether it's in the Mediterranean, Caribbean or Cornwall.
His current approach is inspired by the shapes found around harbours and the land and seascapes he has visited. He paints in oils and has also enjoyed recent experimentation with acrylics, recognising their amazing versatility. One particular trip taken, visiting friends in the Cayman Islands a couple of years ago, saw his return with a new thirst for colour and light. The resulting output is this delightful body of summer inspired paintings, described by Prentice himself as “postcards of his travels”.
Patrick exhibits both nationally and internationally with recent exhibitions including The Royal Society of Marine Artists at Mall Galleries, London and
