Landscape and marine Art by Stewart Kent
Welcome to my website
Originally from Yorkshire most of my life has been spent living in London where my wife and I raised our three children. I took up painting full time when I moved to Cornwall twelve years ago having visited the county regularly during the past 30 years. I am for the most part self-taught although I have learnt a great deal from attending short courses in various parts of the country including a longer stint of eight months on a weekly basis at the West London studio of St Martins School of Art tutor and artist Mike Major. I have been fortunate to gain first hand expertise and knowledge with other brilliant artists such as Kenneth Denton in Norfolk, Ray Balkwill in Devon, Neil Pinkett, Paul Lewin, Alice Mumford in Cornwall and Joseph Zbukvic in France.
I paint Marine and Landscapes in Oils, Watercolor and Mixed Media. I am not currently affiliated to any particular gallery but have sold at the Royal Society of Marine Artists, W H Lane Auctioneers and extensively through my own Guest House Gallery in Penzance. Whenever possible I am out in all weathers painting Plein Air as I find that this mostly requires a fast and spontaneous approach in trying to capture a feeling for the subject and the prevailing atmosphere. I often sketch and photograph the subject for finishing any detailed work in the studio.
Please browse my website and do contact me if you would like to buy a painting from the gallery or if you are interested in a commission.” Recent commissions have included Seaton Park in Devon, Lerryn near Lostwithiel, Clevedon Pier near Bristol and Prussia Cove.
