Interview with an artist – Richard Claremont
Each week on the Thursday Daily at 11:45am we profile an Australian artist – be they a sculptor, painter, dancer, writer – someone working in the creative sphere.
Richard Claremont took the leap into full time painting after 27 years as a Postman. It seems his days walking outside have given him a keen eye for what makes a beautiful composition. With a strong use of vibrant colours and broad strokes, Richard paints his surrounds be it Sydney landmarks, south coast landscapes, or comforting still lifes.
Richard is harnessing the power of social media to share his painting and and build a following. Check out his work on Instagram @richard_claremont.
