Fantastic Work Created At Landscape Painting Workshop with Kieran Stiles
On Thursday 23rd February 2017, Bloxham's art scholars and award holders from the First Form right up to the Upper Sixth Form, enjoyed an experimental oil painting workshop with landscape artist Kieran Stiles.
Kieran is an established landscape artist, and art tutor, teaching in London, France and Oxford. His work is inspired by his love of nature and the outdoors and he brought a selection of his own landscape photography for the students to work from. Students experimented with layers of oil paint, learning a variety of techniques such as using their fingers to create dramatic skies, then etching back into layers of oil paint with stipple brushes, palette knives and sponges to create a range of textures and marks.

For anyone interested in seeing more of this type of work, Kieran will be exhibiting at the Brian Sinfield Gallery in Burford from the 28th February to 11th March or find out more about Kieran and his workshops here.
