Brian Ryder Elected Associate Member Of The ROI

Norfolk based landscape painter Brian Ryder has been elected to Associate Membership of the ROI after a year as Provisional Member.
Brian turned professional in 1993 to pursue a life in painting and teaching, following a long career in Architecture. The demands for his teaching skills grew and he has been teaching for 35 years, and running courses in Britain, together with painting holidays in many parts of Europe. Italy is his preference. In 2011 he will be returning to his favourite haunt in Venice.
Brian paints in most media, but all nearly always landscape based, sometimes abstracts but more impressionist and atmospheric oils being his choice approach, media and style of work, but often using pen and wash on location.

He has exhibited in many galleries in East Anglia, the Cotswolds and London where he held a one- man show of abstract landscapes in 2002. All four of his submitted oils were accepted  from 2008 to 2010 for the R.O.I. exhibition at The Mall Gallery and he was then offered Provisional membership of the R.O.I. for 2010.
Brian has written a numberof books on paiting and featured in several teaching DVDs.

Brian's greatest love is his oil painting and is over the moon with his achievement with the R.O.I. and feels this association with them is the greatest achievement  he has had since his first “real” oil painting some 45 years ago. Originally from North London Brian now lives in Wells-next-the-Sea, Norfolk. Here are some examples of his recent work.
