Alan Langford is a freelance artist and illustrator who specializes in equestrian subject matter. A member of the Society of Equestrian Artists; the painting of horses is an occupation he fins both enjoyable and rewarding. He describes himself as a painter of horses in their natural or working environments, rather than specifically a landscape painter.
He began his artistic career in 1079, working as a full-time illustrator for "Etchmasters" of Alresford,illustrating topographical scenes in pen and ink,which were transferred onto copper plaques. After three years at "Etchmasters",Alan went freelance working through a Fleet Street artist agency, illustrating comics; book covers and fantasy games books.
Since then Alan has illustrated history books, encyclopaedias, adventure stories, myths, and legends. He has worked for B.B.C.Television, illustrating the stories of "Romulus and Remus"and "Androcles and the Lion" for the popular children's programme "Zig-Zag".He has also worked as an art tutor in adult education, and is frequently asked to demonstrate his drawing and painting techniques for amateur art societies, the W.I.etc.
His work has appeared on limited edition prints, greeting cards, and calendars. Alan has published a number of greeting card designs from his own artwork,mainly featuring still recognisable scenes from late 19th.Century.
From October 2005 to January 2010,Alan,with the help of his wife Janet, ran the Compass Studio & Gallery at Winsor in the New Forest, Hampshire.
Today he continues to work in his studio at his home, painting the subject matter of the local area. Free from the constraints of running the Compass Studio & Gallery there is an increased opportunity to actually paint on location in the New Forest, The Isle Of Purbeck or Dartmoor Devon.
He still remains interested in comic and is currently working on a graphic novel as a personnel project.
