Bob Rudd was born in Suffolk in 1944 and studied at the Bath Academy of Fine Art. His work is in numerous private and public collections including the permanent collections of the House of Commons, the House of Lords and Barclays Bank.
Bobís paintings are inspired by the less cultivated landscapes and grand buildings of Britain and Europe. He is a master of the watercolour technique, interpreting light and atmosphere with broad washes of colour. Bobís large watercolours capture the movement of crashing waves, the scorching heat of Provencal lavender fields, the mystery and grandeur of Venice and the pure exhilaration of being in the open air.
