Len Hughes has been a member of the Gallery Painting Group since 1999.
He prefers to work on-location painting landscapes featuring water and reflections, as well as the town and village scenes of the Languedoc region of southern France.
Although he paints in oils and acrylics, he prefers the transparency, fluidity and speed of watercolour. He tends to use it boldly with pure colours in rich washes to explore the vibrancy and capabilities of the medium.
Among other artists who have influenced him are the French Impressionists, Tom Thomson, and the Group of Seven.
Len is also a member of the Brush and Palette Club of London. He has exhibited alone and with other artists in juried and non-juried shows, including Museum London. He is a member of the Sunset Arts Co-operative Gallery in Grand Bend. He has received various awards for his work. Len also teaches watercolour painting.
