Andrew Barrowman landscape artist

Andrew Barrowman is a painter of landscapes and seascapes based in Cornwall. He paints predominantly in oils en plein air and from his studio at Krowji, Redruth.

He spends many hours walking and observing the varied Cornish landscape and coastline as the light changes throughout the day and time of year. In 2021 he won The Bowyer Drawing Prize at The New English Art Club annual exhibition and a Highly Commended Award at the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists summer exhibition.

Andrew has recently exhibited with the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists, South West Academy of Fine and Applied Arts, New English Art Club, The Drawing Society and The Pastel Society in Mall Galleries London.

In 2021 he published his first book ‘Views from the studio window’ featuring 120 oil studies painting the view from his studio at Krowji, Redruth, as it changed over the course of a year. This book was generously part funded by Cultivator Cornwall.

He teaches oil painting with St Ives School of Painting, Truro Arts adult Workshop programme as well as running small group sessions at his studio in Redruth.

Plein air artist

‘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.’

‘Painting inland I usually come home covered in mud or scratched by brambles after tumbling over with all my painting gear – and the dog in hand!’
