Clare Bowen is a British plein air artist. Her style is contemporary impressionist and she portrays her subjects through her love of light and colour.  
She earned an HND in Fine Art & Illustration at Portsmouth Art School in 1992.

Clare is a qualified teacher and is experienced in teaching all levels of oil painting both in her studio and en plein air. Her passion for painting shines through when delivering workshops and in her own paintings too.

en plein air

Painting the Lowcountry 

Clare will take you through each stage of creating a plein air painting, from choosing a subject right through to completion with demonstrations and plenty of encouragement and guidance. 

Some of the key areas the workshop will include: Dynamic compositions, tonal values and colour mixing, soft and hard edges, loose and fresh brush work and how to make everything relate and harmonise in your painting. Clare will also supply and demonstrate some special tips and tools which she will give out during the retreat.
There will be practical help with plein air & painting equipment.

At the end of Clare’s four day retreat students will come away with a greater understanding and experience of how to approach a plein air painting from start to finish plus the next steps required for their own plein air journey. 

Clare delivers an informative yet relaxed retreat. She is friendly and enthusiastic and has a lot to share from her years of being an artist.
