Rod Willis

Born in Kidderminster in 1969 Rod Willis became a professional artist after graduating from university. His passion for the landscape was inspired by a childhood spent in the valleys and hills of Worcestershire and Shropshire.

Rod Willis works in both oil and watercolour and is inspired by the great Romantic landscape painters and also the Newlyn School and Lamorna artists. The basis for Rod’s paintings has always been his intuitive feel for light, atmosphere and mood coupled with a natural eye for composition.

Rod Willis discovered the Lake District for the first time in 2005 and has never looked back. He loves to be up on the peaks at daybreak capturing the first golden hour of sunlight, often climbing mountains in near darkness and is inspired and humbled by the sight of those early rays passing over mist laden valleys and fells.

Rod Willis uses the quality of oil paint to bring a depth and colour to his paintings, and his mastery of the medium allows him to capture ephemeral effects such as flickering sunlit reflections on water or the fierce colours of a sunset, making them seem to almost burn out of the canvas.

Not surprisingly, Rod Willis has experienced considerable success in his chosen career and his striking paintings are highly sought after with many often sold before they are even completed.
