Andrew Barrowman Landscape artist
Andrew Barrowman is a painter of landscapes and seascapes working mainly in oils. Based in West Cornwall, most of his subjects are usually discovered whilst walking his dog. He finds skies and the Cornish light particularly fascinating. Andrew doesn’t have to travel far to discover locations for his work, often finding the most interesting subjects are everyday places.
Farm tracks and lanes, corners of fields, distant glimpses of the sea, views from the coast path and sunrises or sunsets seen from the beach are painted either on location or in the studio at Krowji using plein air sketches as reference.
Andrew sells his oil paintings throughout the year at The Customs House Gallery Porthleven. Exhibition is now on from 8 August – 17 August.
He joined Gallery 5 in Salcombe and has been working on location in Salcombe until the Covid-19 pandemic. He hopes to return for more plein air work very soon. He’s also joining an exciting new gallery in Cornwall this Summer (more details to follow). He also has work in VK Gallery Cambridgeshire and takes part in the changing exhibitions they put on.
