Shane Couch seascape artist

Shane Couch seascape artist

Since childhood I have had a fascination with the sea. It has been the inspiration behind my artistic journey. As a self taught artist I have developed the skills best suited to attempt to capture this element. I work in oils, a medium I have found to both suit my personality and best represent the feeling and movement of the sea. Most of my paintings are inspired by walks along the shore when a momentary moment in time will spark the artistic vision.

Joanna Commings

Painting by Joanna Commings

I have been painting and drawing all my life, having taken many courses over the years. Although originally concentrating on portraits, for which I still take commissions, love of landscape painting began with my move to Cornwall 13 years ago. I work mainly in acrylics, which I love for their versatility, on watercolour paper, board or canvas. I am inspired by the Cornish scenery, primarily around the Camel Estuary, the coastal scenery of Rock and Padstow, the North Cornish coast and Bodmin Moor. My work has been exhibited in many galleries in Cornwall and Devon. I am an Associate Member of the South-West Academy.

John Tregembo

Painting by artist John Tregembo

Born in Padstow, John paints the Cornish coast in all its moods, although his work can sometimes lean towards representational he is most interested in trying to portray the feeling of the sea and is continually experimenting with different mediums and techniques. Find John Tregembo on Facebook Follow John Tregembo on twitter Network with John Tregembo on linkedin



I am a commission artist working from home and have a running exhibition of my work at The Old Inn,St Breward on Bodmin Moor. I work from my studio at home; the sweeping views of the moor give me so much inspiration. Mostly I work in oils and watercolour but also pastel. Very often the discipline of one medium can influence another helping to create a particular image. I would like to experiment with mixed media, perhaps this will be my project for next year. It is very special to be commissioned to paint a portrait. You can see the one that hangs at the HQ of the Cornwall Air Ambulance Trust on my website and also many other pictures which include pet portraits land and seascapes. Flower painting is also a love of mine so do contact me. I may be able to paint a picture to suit you.

Tracey Hunter Art

Tracey Hunter Art

North Cornwall based artist Tracey Hunter Influences are from the cubist art movement, one of the most significant art movements of the twentieth century. Cubist founders Picasso and Braque reduced their subjects to basic geometric forms, rejecting the traditional philosophy that art should copy nature. Tracey has studied this form using a limited palette, and has adapted the style to suit the environment she finds herself in. Tracey’s paintings have sold internationally and added to many private collections. Exhibits – Market House Gallery – Marazion Fernlea Gallery – St Ives Karensa Art – Padstow Studio - Wadebridge.

The Owls House Studio

Art work by Mary Allen of The Owls House Studio

Artist Mary Allen's bold and spontaneous work embodies a very personal take on all things related to the sea and her beloved cornish coastline. She demonstrates this by using fairly thick layers of paint finishing with layers of glazes to produce the texture and tone her work has become recognized for. The palette knife is her preferred tool, however hands and the odd kitchen utensil here and there also play their part. She works from her studio at The Owls House, which, when she is not traveling, is open to the public, and so it is always wise to ring before a visit.

Matthew Hedges - seascape painter

Matthew Hedges - seascape painter

Matthew Hedges started painting more than 25 years ago and has devoted his working life to painting ocean waves in all kinds of light, producing exciting works of art in gouache, and occasionally, oil on canvas. His aim is to capture the texture and detail of the breaking wave with paint applied boldly and overlaid with razor sharp brush strokes. Originally from London, his intimacy with the ocean began in 1992 when his desire to paint the sea was ignited by winter storms at Kynance Cove on the Lizard. After 4 years studying Illustration at Falmouth School of Art and Design, he had become very at ease with gouache, however the medium he mainly uses today is oil on board.

Abstract oil paintings inspired by the landscape, seascape and skyscape of West Cornwall. I make intuitive marks with a palette knife - a loose, free technique that reproduces the images taken from memory rather than photographs or sketches.

I use oil paint as I love their depth and permanence, revisiting the work many times to build depth and texture, working into the surface with tools and different media to bring the paintings to life. I paint part-time from my home studio in the village of Townshend, near Hayle.
