Lawrence Coulson has been surrounded by the art business for as long as he can remember. His father being Gerald Coulson, one of the country’s foremost landscape and aviation artists. He was always encouraged to draw, his main subject being cars. As he grew up, all he ever wanted to be was a car designer, an occupation he would have loved to have pursued.
“…My paintings have always been based on the English landscape. I have dabbled in other things but for me its landscapes that have held the most interest. I feel a huge amount of satisfaction in trying to create the tension that fills the air just before a thunderstorm, or the atmosphere of being the first one on the beach on a cold autumn morning. My favourite coastal haunts are the huge beaches from Old Hunstanton, Brancaster and Thornham to the marshes of Cley and Blakeney.”
