Richard Ponder has been painting professionally since the 1970's. During his years of painting in Australia the artist developed the palette knife technique which he passed on to his brother Mike Ponder. Richard Ponder is well known for his impressionistic flower series and his representational paintings, especially landscapes. Recently Richard's painting has moved to a more expressionistic style exemplified by the Wellington cityscape at night series. Many of Richard's Wellington paintings are available as prints.
