Oliver started painting the landscape over 30 years ago, initially as a hobby and then professionally since 2013, developing his skills from experince, learning from what went well (and what didn't!) Always taking opportunities to learn from the landscape itself, he has developed a rich understanding of both the technical skills and creative vision required to express landscape moments in his preferred medium of watercolour. Oliver is keen to share his knowledge with those looking to begin or continue their own landscape painting journeys, with an emphasis on helping students to find their own artistic expressions and develop confidence painting in their own individual styles.
