| Robert Greenhalf
Robert was born in 1950 at Haywards Heath, Sussex, England. He studied at Eastbourne and Maidstone Colleges of Art, graduating in 1971 with a Diploma in Art and Design in Graphics. His subjects are mainly wildlife, domestic animals, and landscape. He places great emphasis upon observing and sketching in the field and his watercolours are frequently made directly from life. This approach lends a lively spontaneity and authenticity to the work, which is often difficult to achieve in the studio.
Robert was elected a Member of the Society of Wildlife Artists 1981 and a member of the Royal Society of British Artists in 1982. The book Twentieth Century Wildlife Artists (1986, Croom Helm) and Modern Wildlife Painting (1998, Pica Press) by Nicholas Hammond, contain features on Robert's work, and further examples have appeared in approximately 30 other publications.
