Landscape Oil Paintings

Currently available landscape oil paintings featuring the English seaside and countryside

Original oils

This is the collection I'm spending most of my time developing right now. I am the archetypal artist – locked away painting, in my garret.

These oil paintings on canvas and canvas board have all been painted in my studio in Yorkshire, UK. I've currently paintings of Devon, Pembrokeshire and Northumberland in my list 'to-do'. Of course, many of these paintings are inspired by my home county, which includes wonderful places such as: Whitby, Bridlington and Flamborough Head.

All of these landscape oil paintings are the result of an intense process involving several phases and many steps in each phase.

Phase one is about exploring and getting to know a location. It's when I study the scenery intently, trying to absorb its character, identify key features and understood what makes being there feel the way it does. I may only be able to visit the place once, or if closer to home I can visit several times. I study the area by sketching, photographing and painting it ‘en plein air’. Sometimes all three, at other times only a quick sketch is possible.

Phase two happens back in my studio. This phase is all about figuring out if a painting could be painted that works and if it could, planning how to do it. Lots of scribbling and painting using acrylics or oils.

Phase three is when the painting gets painted. Everything I do now ends up on the canvases you see above. All the work I've done to get to this point is hidden, unless I make my sketches and plein air paintings available to buy.

Once the landscape oil is finished, the last phase takes place. The paint ‘rests’ which means it is allowed to cure. Oils go through a number of changes while they dry. Once dry, the art is photographed and scanned for giclées, before being varnished and finally, framed.

You can buy my lino prints from my galleries in Yorkshire, UK. I am planning to add the ability to buy from this site using PayPal. If you would like to know when this is achieved, subscribe to my newsletter.

Three kinds of landscape paintings to see:

Oil Landscape Paintings

These are oils painted entirely in my studio. (This webpage, above.)

I say 'entirely' – initial sketches etc., are made on location. The paintings themselves however are painted entirely in the studio. Usually they're larger paintings, but include all sizes with quite a few medium and small ones in the collection.

I spend most of my time working on this kind of painting – I am the archetypal artist, locked away, painting in my garret (studio).

Larger paintings are on stretched canvas over a wooden frame, while smaller paintings are on good quality canvas panel

Take A Look

Plein air oil paintings

Painting on the moors

My Plein-air original oil paintings are all painted outdoors on location

Often smaller than most of my studio art. The amount of time I get to spend painting this type of painting varies a great deal throughout the year.

They are painted on canvas board and are painted 'alla prima', meaning they're not layered-up or blended like my studio art

I paint them outside, then bring them back in to the studio where I study them and 'tickle' them if needed. ('Tickle' is a term used by one of our foremost plein-air painters called Pete The Street [Peter Brown].)

I'm currently reviewing this activity as part of my ongoing professional development.

Other mediums

Paintings on paper painted using acrylics, watercolour, pastel, pencil, etc., or a combination.

These paintings are made: when there is something very specific I want to explore inside or outside the studio; when I have to travel light; or when it's an unexpected painting opportunity. They're made both in the studio and outdoors.

This collection is not updated as regularly as the others. At the moment I've only scanned-in and added a few of my acrylic paintings to this collection.

Paintings on paper

My larger original landscape paintings will be available as limited edition, signed Giclée prints.

Painting paintings

I spent the early part of my career as a fulltime employed illustrator producing paintings every day.

My paintings were in a technical realist style. I decided this was not suitable for fine art landscape oils, but struggled to change my approach after years working in that way. So I decided to take a break from making paintings and concentrate on my linocuts. As is the way, the break ended up being far longer than I'd ever envisaged. However, I've developed a sense of purpose now that I've not had before and can't make paintings fast enough. I feel I have a lot to catch up on.
