Keith Harris was originally trained and educated as an electrical engineer. He later studied software engineering and spent his career as a university lecturer teaching computing subjects and electrical engineering. He studied art on specialist short courses at adult education classes and, but otherwise he is primarily a self-taught artist. He’s a Fine Artist working in Oils. His inspiration is the effect of man on the landscape, particularly in urban and industrial settings. Most of his studio paintings are on fine canvas or calico glued to MDF board using hand made gesso and traditional rabbit-skin glue. Harris is a member of Huddersfield Art Society; he also is an exhibiting member of Leeds Fine Artists, is an Invited Artist at Holmfirth ArtWeek and exhibits regularly in the Yorkshire region. Harris is attracted to brilliantly lit locations in Spain and to scenes that have a strong form. He strives to capture the inspiration with a sketch done on the spot; he prefers to use ink to avoid the temptation of using an eraser and to gain immediacy. If necessary the artist reworks the sketches done on the spot, at times, with the help of a few reference photos, he creates finished oil paintings in his studio. He is guided by the need to retain the spontaneity of the original vision when he’s translating the inspiration into a painting. Increasingly, he now works in oils directly on site (en plein air) to produce either a near-finished piece that he later completes in the studio or a relatively small and finished piece there and then. Framed Keith Harris art are today a common sight in many buildings.
