Ralph Waterhouse
Ellwood After Spring Rain

2019

About

This painting was painted on location after few days of heavy rain, at Ellwood Bluffs, Santa Barbara which is very popular with artists because it offers a good variety of alternate locations within a very small area. Ralph's paintings have been described as having a feeling of serenity, which reflects his love of natural environment. After spending many years as a graphic designer Ralph decided to pursue his real love, painting the countryside and its wildlife. Painting became a full-time occupation in the early 70's when he moved to the English Lake District. Ralph lived there for many years and it has a special place in his heart, with its lakes, beautiful villages and mountains which evoke a feeling peace. Ralph's wildlife paintings led to International recognition and this included articles in leading magazines, a feature on BBC Television in England and One Man and Group Art Shows in England, West Germany and the USA. In the late 1980's Ralph became inspired by the California Landscape and its beautiful light. He changed his focus from the very intimate environment of his Wildlife Paintings to a much broader vista encompassing the whole landscape. The late afternoon and early morning sunlight have a special quality which Ralph loves to capture on canvas. He spends as much time painting "en plein-air" as possible, but works on his larger canvases in his studio. In the early 90's Ralph was asked by the British Consul in Los Angeles to present Margaret Thatcher with one of his paintings as a memory of her visit to California. Ralph's has exhibited in the national Oil Painters of America Exhibitions and one of his paintings was in an exhibition at the State Capitol Building. He was recently commissioned to paint several large murals, which will be prominently be placed in the main branches and corporate offices of Santa Barbara Bank and Trust. In 2007, Ralph was also commissioned to paint and design Santa Barbara's historic Old Spanish Day's Fiesta Poster, which has been a tradition and cultural celebration in Santa Barbara for over 75 years. He has had articles in leading magazines won awards at various Art shows, acted as a judge for Museums Art shows. His work is in many private collections throughout the world. Ralph is a founder member of the Santa Barbara Art Dealers Association and he is currently Chairman of the California Art Club, Central Coast Chapter.
