Painting / Paentio

Ken is an impressionistic landscape painter living in Gwynedd. He is inspired by the Snowdonia landscape that surrounds his home from the dramatic mountain peaks to the coastline. The ever -changing weather and seasons are captured in his striking and energetic style that offers the reader a sense of the Welsh landscape and its unpredictable weather patterns.

Ken works in variety of media, but mainly enjoys painting with oils through brush and palette knife giving texture to the works. Watercolour is also popular with Ken giving quite different results and variety to his work but also maintaining his signature impressionist style and play with light.

These works are painted in oils and were from a residency trip to Bardsey Island off the coast of the Llŷn Peninsula. Ken paints both on location and in the studio often making sketches and taking photographs during his walks. We are welcoming Ken into the gallery for the first time with this exhibition.
