Neil Cox artist

As with last week’s artist, we visit another painter of avian life. #NeilCox (1955- ) was born in London and loved to draw from his youth. He read law at university but turned to his first love to pursue a career as an avian/wildlife painter.

His formative years were influenced by artists such as #ArchibaldThorburn and #RobertBateman. Neil works in either oils or watercolours. From looking at his work, one would be surprised to learn that Neil is totally self-taught.

I have two pieces by Neil Cox in my collection. Both are beautifully painted and display a pair of birds in each work. A wonderful combination of colour and exactness of execution produce a vivid and vibrant presentation of real life.
