The Spirit of Place

“The Spirit of Place”

The landscape paintings of Allan Stephenson

Welcome to the studio of Allan Stephenson.

Here you will find an overview of my landscape paintings in oil and pastel arranged

according to geographical themes.

I am always looking for and attempting to communicate with the viewer that special sense of place that infuses some areas of the natural world with meaning, wonder and beauty and I hope my work can provide some escape from the sometimes frantic world we all live in. I am a traditionalist. I don’t see the art I produce as breaking any kind of new ground but rather I apply myself to existing techniques and forms and attempt to inject perhaps fresh content.
