Ray Burnell is a contemporary landscape painter, and as a Welsh learner he is interested in the links between landscape, history and language.
He paints mainly in oils but recently he's tried mixed media art and begun to introduce materials such as sand and slate etc. to add interesting textures and abstract shapes to landscape / seascape painting.
Ray goes plein air painting one day a week in the spring and Summer. "Painting out in the landscape is a completely different experience from painting in the studio. Painting outside in West Wales is a challenge sometimes, with changing light , weather……….and wildlife from angry horseflies to sandwich stealing Preseli ponies !!"
