Original oil paintings
A butcher who originally trained himself with basic paint-by-numbers kits, Richard is now one of the world’s leading marine artists with a huge waiting list and pieces selling for up to £40,000.
When he first began painting marine subjects he received instruction from Brian Mays, the well-known marine painter. Mays then introduced Firth to the works of the famed marine artists, Stephen Dews and Stephen Renard, who became his mentors. A keen yachtsman Richard has spent a great deal of time on the ocean waves in order to hone his sailing and painting skills.
His stunning seascapes are highly sought after by collectors of fine marine art and are sold in some of the most prestigious auction houses across the world, including Christies in New York. However, due to the limited amount of paintings Richard creates each year, only a handful are currently available worldwide.
