MATT RYDER – Oil Painting Experience

Matt Ryder is an award-winning British artist committed to documenting the land, sea and sky of the changing landscapes that surround us. A life-long painter inspired by the natural world, and the beauty of nature and wildlife.
With a true love for the outdoors Matt’s paintings often start as small onsite studies, painting ‘Plein-Air’, in order to capture true light and colour. Many of these studies are then transferred to the studio and used as colour reference for larger work.
Matt has lived, painted and taught in the UAE for the last 12 years. He travels extensively during the summer months, capturing the mountains and coasts of Europe in paint and is happy to be teaching in the Gorges du Verdon for the first time.
