Alfred Heaton Cooper

Victorian landscape painter from Bolton
His sketches of everyday life are very nice, but his landscape paintings rock my socks. He went to Norway a few times and married a woman from there, so there are a lot of paintings of fjords and glaciers and things alongside lake district and lancashire views.

The paintings that really catch my eye are the ones with the big differences in hues or changes in light and dark.
He mostly used watercolour and oil. Not at the same time though.
