WINNER OF THE BOWYER DRAWING PRIZE 2021 at the NEW ENGLISH ART EXHIBITION in MALL GALLERIES LONDON

HIGHLY COMMENDED AT THE ROYAL BIRMINGHAM SOCIETY OF ARTISTS FRIENDS EXHIBITION 2021

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 runs the Sketching Club at Krowji where members sketch around the Redruth area.
