It was his lack of interest in maths, history and all other classroom
subjects that made Larry take up art. He enrolled at art school aged 13 and has been painting ever since.
"With accomplished technical ability now rare, Larry
Learmonth's Minor Prophet combines the traditions on
english neo-Romantic landscape with an eerie and
enigmatic surrealism that leave the spectator with a
profound sense of unease."
Brian Sewell - Art Critic.  (Daily Mail, June 2004)
Awards and commissioning clients:
Larry lives close to the sea in Tywyn on the beautiful west coast of Wales and several of his paintings depict  mountain
