John Hilliard was a self-taught artist working in West Somerset whose imagery was inspired by the North Devon and Somerset coastline where he walked with his dog. Working in a Turner-esque manner, his oils and pastels capture the atmosphere of reflected light off the water, suffused into clouds of colour. His pastels are particularly ‘painterly’. These are delightfully ethereal depictions of coastlines with which he was intimately familiar.
