Ken Burton’s interest in art began at school, leading to a career in design and engraving. Subsequently entering public service, Ken finally ‘retired’ in 1985 and settled down to his real vocation – capturing the beauty of the countryside in watercolour.
Ken is inspired by Victorian watercolours, and has spent the last 20 years visiting almost every county in the U.K. producing paintings, predominantly in watercolour, of the rapidly changing countryside, towns and villages.
Ken also paints Acrylic on cotton canvas board, a looser style combining brush and palette knife, depicting coastal scenes, cityscapes and industrial scenes. He has also produced drawings in ink, pen and wash, stemming from training in his early years in design and engraving.
While exhibiting in galleries across the UK, his work has also been reproduced as Limited Edition prints and books, and is in private collections in the U.S.A., Australia, New Zealand and Europe.
