Paul Newcastle


I’m best known for my landscape and seascape paintings rendered in oil. I also enjoy painting still-life and portraits.

I want my seascapes and landscapes to capture the beauty of natural light. I’m inspired by nature, the reflections, the colours and the emotions it creates. I love the movement of the sea, wether it’s a crashing wave against the rocks or a gentle roll onto a white sandy beach… we all need escapism. My escapism is painting it!

I’m inspired by the great Dutch painters past and present especially Vermeer, Rembrandt van Rijn, Janhendrik Dolsma and Tjalf Sparnaay.

A member of the Society of Staffordshire Artists (currently Vice President) I’m proud of my Staffordshire roots. I have my art studio in the town centre of Newcastle-under-Lyme, Staffordshire. I was winner of “The People’s Choice Award” at The Brampton Museum and Art Gallery Open Exhibition 2019. I’ve also exhibited throughout the U.K.  Commissions are welcome.
