Andrew Barrowman

Landscape painting in Cornwall, Andrew Barrowman paints en plein air and in the studio using oils as his chosen medium. He tries to convey the feeling and atmosphere of a landscape onto canvas for the viewer to have an idea of what it was like to be there. His paintings often start with ideas found whilst walking his dog. He usually carries a small sketch book with him, making quick sketches and colour notes. These will sometimes be developed into paintings.

“I love working outdoors when I get the opportunity. Painting by the sea, I often come home tasting the salt on my lips from the spray thrown into the air as the waves crash against the rocks.
I like to encourage people to paint in their own way, rather than like I do, but I help them

as they encounter difficulties with the application of the oil paints. I also advise on composition and colour mixing. On location I help them to look for interesting passages of light and shade contrasts rather than big views.”

What our students say

Just wanted to say what a brilliant workshop Andrew gave, he is so good at explaining what he’s doing, I was totally absorbed, thank you.
