Welcome to the website of Francis Nicholls, contemporary impressionist oil paintings. Dunedin, New Zealand.
This website contains a selection of my recent work. These pictures are primarily New Zealand landscape motifs. Some are Australian as I lived in Australia for a number of years, returning to NZ in 2014. There is a blend of influences in the pictures and varying degrees of abstraction. There is the common thread of paint application technique with a variety of textures and expressive impasto paint.
