Brian Jull Original Paintings

Born and raised in the historic Naval centre of Greenwich, London, the sea and the admiralty have been a major influence on Brian Jull's life and career. At 18, Jull left the family home and joined the merchant navy. He travelled throughout Europe and the Far East. Having met and married his wife during this time Jull decided that after three years of life on the sea, he would settle down to start a family.

With no formal training Jull decided to take up painting. He revisited the collections in The Maritime Museum in his hometown and became convinced that he wanted to paint. Turner, the English master greatly influenced Jull's early style of painting. Turner's dynamic use of paint, used to capture the light and scale of a sea storm and the subject, that is abstracted and almost unrecognisable, were the starting point for Jull.

He travelled to coastal towns of Sussex and East Anglia, to paint the soft grey light of the sea as it met the land. Weather and coastal sea storms were depicted with bold washes of colour. Light and contrast became the key components to these pictures and studies. As his confidence grew as a painter, Jull began to experiment with a more impressionistic style of painting. He travelled to Paris and Giverny to study the 19th Century masters Monet, Seurat, Renoir. He echoed these masters by painting scenes 'in situ'.
