(1783-1859) English artist. He studied under John Varley and made a living as a drawing master. His watercolor landscapes, many of scenes in N Wales, show attractive cloud effects, and are characterized by broad color washes on rough, tinted paper.
After a varied experience in painting the lids of snuff-boxes and also scenery for the provincial theater, he had some lessons in watercolor from John Varley, and became a drawing master in London and at Hereford. In later years he painted much in North Wales and his inn sign for the Royal Oak, Bettws-y-Coed, is famous. He is noted for watercolors in which broken touches and atmospheric effect give a distant anticipation of Impressionism. He took to oils late in life, adapting his watercolor technique. A Windy Day (Tate Gallery) well shows his special gift. His treatises on painting are the more conventional recipes of the drawing master.
