Robert Dutton – (Expressive Art)


Robert pops up regularly because people rave about his infectious enthusiasm and energy. Lots of this comes from what the landscape and views can offer artists when they are interpreted in the right way – Robert uses location as a start, often with photographs, and is strong on demos to show you what can be achieved. The results from Students can sometimes be breathtaking.
