Brian continues the Badcock tradition of “plein air” painting. Artworks painted “on-site” enables him to marry nature and art in a very pure and organic way. Brian learned this painting method from his father Douglas Badcock who was also a prolific and well-known artist. “For me, the joy of painting comes from the delight in the creation and a connection with the creator”.

When the weather isn’t conducive to painting outdoors, he works in his studio on larger works composed from outdoor works.

Examples of these paintings can be viewed on this site headed Art Galleries under “non-figurative”.

Available is a large collection of paintings done on countless trips covering the length and breadth of New Zealand. Also available is work done in India, his wife’s birthplace.

You are welcome to explore the galleries.
