Richard Robinson International Artist

by Francetta Bridle
(Palm Cove, Queensland)

Richard Robinson lives in Ruakaka, New Zealand and has been painting professionally in oils since 2001.

Internationally renowned as a world class Impressionist painter, his work is featured in several international publications, including International Artist Magazine, Australian Artist Magazine and Plein Air Magazine.

He has also been invited as the opening guest speaker at the inaugural Plein Air Convention in the USA and invited again for the following two years.

His DVD ‘Mastering Color’ is recognised as the ultimate instruction on tackling this complex subject and is a must for all artists DVD libraries. The easy step by step learning in oil or acrylic applies to both beginners and to those who have been painting for some time as the lessons and exercises can be used to reinforce and refresh.

One of his latest ventures is collaboration and in alignment with Barry John Raybold, of The Virtual Art Academy, the on-line learning system of world repute, which is equivalent to 3 years study at an art college. Richard has introduced videos to the theory that visually demonstrates each of the academy’s teaching blocks.

Still only a young man and married with two children, Richard has become one of the foremost artists in this genre.

In subscribing to Richards newsletters he not only gives many tips and instructional videos he also introduces many informative articles, particularly on other modern artists with an unusual twist to their repertoire. You can view his paintings at and his video painting lessons at
