Dick first painted in the mid-1960s, when it was a seminal event for him to encounter Peter Lanyon’s ‘Offshore’ in Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery. He taught Biology for 37 years, and has lived in Dorset since 1970. His experience of studying the ecology of many Dorset habitats and of teaching biological fieldwork there may well have influenced his painting. His work often arises from interpretation of landscape, ranging from contemporary figurative to abstract. He usually paints in oils. Most of his painting is done in his studio. When painting ‘landscapes’, initial research in the field usually and increasingly involves quite rapid sketches using various media, singly or together: pencil, ink, charcoal, graphite, watercolour washes. The two paintings that he exhibited in the Summer Exhibition, RA London in 2016 both sold and the same happened with the work that was selected in the RA's 2018 exhibition. Dick exhibits widely including with the Royal West of England Academy.
