The Artist Says:


"I don't try to paint what is in front of me, I try to paint something with atmosphere and interest based on the subject. I remove as much detail as possible and paint as broadly as my mood allows."



Collectors Say:


'Dear Neil, Pot with Grapes arrived! I cannot tell you how thrilled my husband and I are with the painting. It is even better than I imagined and even better than the photograph. It's lovely, truly lovely. Thank you so much!' B. Way, USA




Biography



 
I am a self-taught painter from London. My wish to become a painter was always blocked by real life commitments but the desire never left me. With the required time now available I am pursuing this ambition, painting in oils since 2011, full time since 2017. My work is collected worldwide.
 
I am a Daily Painter with the goal of releasing a painting everyday. In doing so I am learning how to paint faster than working larger and doing the very thing I have always wanted to do - paint.

My painting 'Jar of Strawberries' was selected for the Royal Institute of Oil Painters Annual Exhibition in the Mall Galleries, London. My paintings have also sold through galleries and a publisher.

Art critic Brian Sherwin
'Neil Carroll’s still life paintings tease viewers with a sense of momentary presence… in other words, [...]
