About Richard Snowden
Born 1950 between Leeds and Harrogate. First sell-out exhibition at 18 years old. Exhibited at various locations around the world before settling back in North Yorkshire. I am compelled to paint figuratively and am very colourblind. I love the light, how it falls and plays with the subject. There you have it...light paint canvas....Go!
