Terry Bevan is a watercolour artist living in North Somerset, he specialises in finely detailed paintings of town, country and coastal scenes. He works mainly in the West Country and South Wales.
Terry Bevan was born on the Gower he spent his youth enjoying the wild coast of that area. He trained in the West of England College of Art as a Sculptor and went on to teach Art at Nailsea School before leaving to work as a professional artist. Over the years he experimented with different media before developing his own style and realising that watercolour painting gave him the most satisfaction and enabled him to portray the landscape as he saw it. His aim is to convey the calmness and beauty of the scene without unnecessary flourish or embellishment.
‘I have no desire to artistically enhance a view or to make an artistic impression of the landscape but to simply record the natural beauty of the scene as it stands before me; to capture the stillness of the day’
