"Exploring the Beauty of Dorset: Tips for Painting a Landscape in Oil"

Updated: May 24


I love living in Dorset; its wonderful places and beautiful scenery are a constant source of inspiration.

One of my favorite spots is Durdle Door, though it becomes quite crowded during the summer months.

Recently, I moved from my hometown of Dorchester to the Isle of Portland. This unique location features charming buildings cascading down to the sea, quarries, grassy areas, and small towns scattered across the island.

The area has inspired me to paint its landscapes.

I wanted to capture the distinctive shapes, winding paths, and steep hills with a vibrant color palette.
