John Harris   Illustration portfolio: Landscapes

Whether pastel or oil painting, John Harris's landscapes can be warm and inviting, dark and brooding, realistic or almost completely abstract. He is a master at working with colour and suggesting atmosphere. Sometimes the temptation to add a figure to a landscape is hard to resist so with the briefest of brush strokes a landscape takes on a narrative element.

Here you'll find a combination of book cover illustrations and more personal work inspired by the Devon landscape outside his door. After a long career of producing book covers for some classic titles in a representational style it would be interesting to see whether the more free and abstract work could be used for some more recent covers.
