Born in St Albans in Hertforshire in the UK in 1870, Reginald Goodman studied under the eminent watercolour artist Wilfred Ball before embarking on an overseas trip that took in Holland, South Africa and Australia. He arrived in Sydney Australia in 1913 and painted many watercolours in Sydney and NSW rural areas. In 1914 he joined the Army and served in the Royal Fusiliers and received a commission into the Northamptonshire regiment in 1915. He served in Salonika Greece and painted a watercolour at Vardar which is in the British Military Gallery. After the War he returned to England and lived for 11 years at Hinwick House near Wellingborough where he and his wife painted many pictures and portraits. After the Second World War, they moved to Sheringham in Norfolk, until 1953 when they moved to Surrey to live with their son at Kingswood.
