is a self-taught British realist painter, who depicts photorealistic landscapes using acrylic paint. His work contains familiar British landscapes, nostalgic seascapes, and recently has expanded to Californian scenery. Reid’s artistic career began seven years ago, when he taught himself to paint: a distraction while he nursed his dog to health. Incidentally, the same dog is depicted in “Blue”. His work is acrylics on canvas or panel.
