Cornwall is a wonderful county to visit, especially for the artist! It is full of fantastic subjects, presented largely by the many small harbours and inlets along the coast. The most essential skill in painting harbour scenes is to simplify and declutter an overwhelming amount of detail, incoherent shapes, and general mess (lobster pots, rubber tyres and decommissioned trawlers!)

Getting to Know Oliver

Oliver creates idyllic watercolor landscapes from his home studio in Sussex, England. “Watercolor is the perfect medium for capturing the vicissitudes of the British climate and allows me to make a spontaneous response to the delicate northern light that is with us for much of the year,” he says. He believes that above all, observation is key to his development as an artist. Oliver derives the most inspiration from being outdoors, in the field, observing his surroundings.
