Oliver Pyle

Oliver Pyle is an established and successful landscape artist working exclusively in watercolour. Based in Sussex, his work is to be found in collections across the country and internationally, selling through UK galleries and online. Oliver’s art is much in demand and features as The Oliver Pyle Collection, part of the UK’s oldest and most prestigious Fine Art greetings card publisher, Medici Cards. Oliver teaches watercolour and painting techniques through workshops, demonstrations and tutorials and is a regular contributor of articles to a range of publications. Since 2017 he has been supported by Daler-Rowney, and his work and experiences outdoors, and in the studio, can be followed on social media and his blog ‘Our Landscape.’

Through Oliver’s paintings we explore the impact of light, the weather, the seasons and how these combine to achieve paintings that are evocative and full of impact; “As a landscape artist my inspiration comes from immersing myself in the outdoors – the heathland, the cliff top, the river bank – where light, smells, sounds, and textures all combine to deliver an outstanding sensory experience – let’s call it ‘atmosphere’ if you like. My aim is never to simply describe or illustrate a scene, rather to create a painting that provides an experience of the place. The natural landscape in the UK is stunning and intriguing and my ambition is to capture that for the viewer, with as little abstraction or embellishment as possible – beauty should be allowed to speak for itself!
