Welcome to Robert-Overhall Art.co.uk
The drawings and paintings of Robert-Overhall (Robert Turrall-Clarke) represent two distinct phases of his life. Although one or two of the pen line and charcoal pictures were drawn when a young officer in the Army, at Oxford University or as a student barrister. The majority were created more recently over the last five or six of years. Most of these works were painted at Chiddingfold in Surrey or at Monpazier in France.
Almost all of Robert Overhall’s art is non-natural. There is no attempt to mirror photographic images, these are his own, unique and expression of his responses to his life and the world he lives in. They are original, evocative and poetic, they are never sentimental. When on occasion artists such as John Constable, Sir Alfred Munnings, or David Hockney are the inspiration, Robert Turrall Clarke's interpretation is very much his own.
As a young man one of his line drawings attracted an award for design from a Royal Academy judge. Robert's work has been exhibited at The Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, and at Llewellyn Alexander Fine Paintings, London - as well as in Brighton, Sussex, Surrey and Hampshire.

Returning to painting after several decades I call myself ‘The Masters’ Apprentice’ because I attempt a range of styles
