John Hoar

www.jhoar.com

John Hoar is a very well known watercolour artist and inspirations have been the great impressionist watercolour artists who perfected the art of painting in the most direct and economical way. His paintings are widely sought after and he specialises in architectural subjects as well as landscapes, marine scenes and floral studies.

He was born in 1947, the son of Frank Hoar the cartoonist - "Acanthus" of Punch magazine and a highly accomplished watercolourist.  John studied Architecture at Cambridge and Brixton School of Building and, although he studied drawing and painting with Ruskin Spear R.A., he is largely self taught. He has painted professionally since 1980 and is represented in collections in England, Ireland and the USA.

John won first prize for watercolour in 1988, the Donald Blake prize in 2003 and the Lincoln Joyce prize, at the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour, in the same year. He is part author of 'Watercolour Plus', published by David and Charles in 2003 and in 2008 he issued a DVD called 'Simplifying Watercolours'.

His instructional DVDs, made by Town House TV, have been best sellers for some years and are sold all over the world.  In 2016 he represented Britain at the 2nd Qingdao International Watercolour Salon in China.
