|Richard Mitchell was born in Hastings, England and attended the University of Hertfordshire. Although Mitchell used his artistic talents in the form of drawing for much of his life, he did not begin oil painting until 1993. Since then, he has produced a wide range of works, often on commission.
Working in oils or watercolour and preferring subjects that depict human life, Mitchell's style varies from impressionist to realist and always employs the bright use of colour. Mitchell has been influenced by Robert Lenkiewicz. Today, his popular English crowd scenes appear in private collections in Germany, England and the United States.
Mr. Mitchell lives at Sonning Common in Oxfordshire, England, where his work is shown in public exhibitions.
