John Blundell

I was born in Brighton in 1954.  I am married to Val and we have four sons / daughter in laws and seven grandchildren.

I started painting more than 30 years ago and like many who take up art after leaving school I am mainly self taught. After attending art classes in various mediums I settled mainly on painting in oils and pencil drawing.  I now paint using water mixable oil paints.  I mainly use two makes of paints, which are Windsor and Newton – Artisan and Royal Talens – Cobra. These are now becoming widely available.

Over the years I have painted many different subjects but I have always had a great love of the sea.  My main inspiration has been the varying coastline of the Northumberland coast.  Rather than painting well known coastal landmarks I concentrated on painting the sea, in particular waves. In addition, to painting the sea, I have continued to paint and draw abstracts, figures, still life and portraits.

Some of these paintings and drawings can be seen at www.johnblundell.com.

In 2014 God started speaking to me about being involved in prophetic art.

I am a member of the SAA (A Community for All Artists) and was until June 2017 an active member of the Derby Sketching Club.  In addition, I am a member of the Institute of Photography.
