Richard McDiarmid is a signature member of both the Federation of Canadian Artists (SFCA) and the Northwest Watercolor Society (NWWS) and is a frequent participant in international art exchange programs. His many award winning paintings have been exhibited in solo shows, group shows and international shows including, The Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolours, the Federation of Canadian Artists, and the Northwest Watercolor Society (NWWS). Examples of his paintings and articles have been featured in a number of publications The International Artist’s Magazine.
McDiarmid’s paintings include works in oils, acrylics and watermedia. Various forming processes and a random or more exploratory start are employed in developing the visual image. A love of paint and creative process is evident in the energized surfaces that result. Like the art of short story telling, his paintings integrate human activity and surroundings in a visual narrative that invites the viewer in, to discover and explore, to complete the story or continue the inner journey or experience. Contemporary interpretations of subject matter evolve as representational and semi abstract images.
