Sample water colour painting. Find more at: Gouache Paintings

Ric has spent many month in 2022 painting the view from his studio using Gouache, a water-medium paint consisting of natural pigment, water and thickened glue-like substance (gum binding agent) to achieve brilliant, vibrant colours that are lightfast, smooth and solid. Gouache is a French word, from the Latin root aquatio, “watering place” and simply means “watercolour”. The way it’s applied is by using a brush and watercolour paper. He likes this medium for it’s quick-drying, bold qualities and has produced over 30 pieces in recent months, many of them are about 35 x 20cm in size, including a protective mount.  Gouache generally dries to a value that differs from the one it has when wet (lighter tones generally dry darker and darker tones tend to dry lighter), which can make it difficult to match colours over multiple painting sessions. Its quick coverage and total hiding power mean that gouache lends itself to more direct painting techniques than watercolour. Many “en plein air” paintings take advantage of this, as do the works of J. M. W. Turner.

Artist’s Open Houses 2013-21

Award winning artist Ric W. Horner is one of the county’s leading landscape painters whose professional career spans more than 30 years. His work focuses on the elemental qualities of open space, the energy of weather and the expressive qualities of light. He has opened his studio space to the public on various occasions over the past 10 years to  connect with visitors in a more personal way.

.

 

“…His mastery of sky, light and colour is breath taking!”

“Wow! My kind of art. Absolutely stunning. Love it!! Xx

“After seeing his work for the first time it completely changed the way I saw colour in nature, but especially the sky and dark clouds. This incredible oil on canvas captures a moment where the beautiful light and detail pulls you in, so you too are involved and immortalised in the moment.” 

 

The next one will be from October 2024 as part of the East Kent Artists Open Studios and the Canterbury Festival.

Paintings of Salcombe, Devon

The UK coastline is some of the most beautiful in Europe and has a huge number of sailing towns that range from rocky and scenic to stylish destinations known to visitors from around the world. You just can’t beat the rugged cliffs and lush green landscape of England, which is unofficially the ‘home of sailing’ and it has a long and glorious tradition of boat building and for rearing fine sailors.

South Devon is more sedate and often warmer, sunnier than North Devon. It also gets lower rainfall. Salcombe in particular is known for its outstanding views, rolling surrounding countryside, breath-taking natural beauty, sparkling turquoise waters and rugged cliffs. It is a pretty coastal town with lovely spots for sailing traditional boats, or classic yachts. Salcombe was once a major port for the fruit trade and, over the years, has found fame as a safe haven for family holidays and visiting yachtsmen. It is situated at the southern end of the Salcombe Estuary; the estuary is, in fact, a ria which is a landlocked, salt water inlet, with stunning beaches.

Sailing around the UK will get you out of the crowded Solent and into waters further afield. This adventure involves open-ocean and much more offshore-orientated sailing, which may mean rougher weather and more challenging conditions. Ilfracombe in North Devon and Bardsey Island in North Wales for example are far more open to the elements as they catch the Atlantic ocean swells to a greater extent than places further South. This means bigger waves and longer and sandy beaches.

From August 2017 to February 2018 Ric was represented by the Tonic Gallery in Island Street, Salcombe, South Devon.
