‘For this new exhibition at the Old School Gallery, Rob Newton has produced a number of oil paintings, watercolours and monotypes.
The subjects of Rob’s paintings follow a tradition of British landscape painting. His technique is bold and fluid, using broad strokes to allow for a distinctive take on the beauty of the local countryside and seascapes. Rob’s wonderful use of colour captures the unique light and palette of Northumberland.’
