Michael Morgan. Illustrator of trees, coast and moorland.

August 25, 2011

Michael Morgan has a great following within the water-colour enthusiast circles of the world.

Former pupil of John Blockley, Michael is a keen observer of the remoter areas of the UK and his

love of trees and rustic landscapes also become apparent the more of his work that you see.

Michael’s innovative and much sought after paintings have been illustrated or featured in many

publications, both in the UK and abroad. The first edition of his 2004 book “Michael Morgan RI”

sold within ten months of its publication. The revised and updated second edition, containing

30 new paintings together with the original 100, has also sold out and was reprinted in  March 2010.

Michael’s most recent book, published in 2008 to celebrate his 80th birthday,

entitled 80 @ 80 is available here.

Michaels’ beautiful work can also be bought in greeting card form here.

I love his trees and the stark yet textured landscapes he creates. How many of you can say that the words

Wuthering and Heights come to mind at all ?

    I think you have bring G John Blockley style to a new happy ending_ no open white space on paper any more_ but you still need some freedom to keep a feel of atmospheric in your paintings_ the mood of the place as G John used to said!
