Stuart Ball

The winner of the Broughton Cup for the ‘Best in Show’ this year Stuart Ball has unfortunately died.

 

The winner of the Broughton Cup for the ‘Best in Show’ this year was Stuart Ball. Sadly Stuart was unable to attend the show as he was very ill. His partner Linda accepted the cup on his behalf and very sadly the following week Stuart died.
We have been lucky to have hung and sold many of Stuart’s paintings over the last few years and on two occasions he won the Broughton Cup.
Born in Yorkshire he spent his life in Cheshire, Anglesey and Rutland, developing his career in two areas, sales and marketing but also and mainly in the Hotel, Restaurant and Leisure industry. He was self-taught and his paintings are very distinctive and always full of strong, warm and vibrant colours.
He sold his paintings from exhibitions at Rutland County Museum Oakham, Victoria Hall Oakham, Rural Training Centre Owston, Stamford Arts Centre, Art in the Pen Skipton and other various locations and galleries in Rutland, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, Yorkshire, Essex, Wales, Cornwall and Norfolk. After launching his website he then sold all over the world including USA, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, Romania, Spain, Holland, Peru, Oman and the U.K.
He painted landscapes using watercolours with a loose, impressionistic, sometimes witty and whimiscal style, with a simple naive almost childlike perspective. To compose his pictures he took lots of digital photos of the architecture, printed them off when he got back home and then surrounded by these images, he let his mind float about 40ft off the ground and sketched in the basic buildings distorting and replacing the images as he painted. The buildings were all there but as Eric Morecambe used to say “Not necessarily in the right order”
