As a landscape oil painter I have a great passion for the British countryside and coastline, especially that of my home region of East Anglia.
It's a great pleasure to have the opportunity to share my passion with others. It's a good chance to share knowledge and chat to a wide range of other artists. I am available to give demonstrations and take workshops in oil painting for groups and Art Societies. I also enjoy teaching one-to-one and offer a variety of options to suit different skill levels and individual requirements from plein air tuition to zoom lessons.
If you would like to make an enquiry or would like to know more about prices or booking please feel free to contact me using the button below.
My teaching philosophy is based on taking the pressure out of painting, to allow for greater freedom, self expression and of course to enjoy and get the most out of what painting can offer. Learning the essentials in a friendly and encouraging environment helps to provide a solid foundation to create loosely painted, consistent, confident and individual work.

Oil Landscape in a Day (Now FULL)
17th and 18th July 2021
St Osyth, Essex
A unique opportunity to join Graham for these exciting studio and plein air oil painting days! Each day will start with a demonstration followed by the chance to create your own painting with help on hand. The first day will focus on creating a sense of atmosphere and expression in your paintings and the second day will concentrate on structure and form. It's your choice if you do both days or just the one that inspires you most as Graham will cover different subjects on each day incorporating a variety of skills and techniques. He will be exploring how you can approach your painting from start to finish in one go. These workshops will allow you to paint plein air (weather permitting) or use our studio facilities with reference material either provided by Graham or yourself. There will also be a trouble shooting slot if you wish to bring any unresolved paintings along with you?
From Field to Frame (Now FULL)
17th and 18th August 2021
St Osyth, Essex
Working in oils over two days, join Graham Webber ROI IEA in learning how to paint 'en plein air', to gather information for a larger painting back in the studio. Throughout the two days Graham will give you an insight into working outside, what materials and techniques will help you make the most of the limited time and challenges of working on the spot from life. Learning how to distill the subject in front of you into key pieces of information and advice on equipment, working wet in wet, colour matching and working with shapes will be part of day one. Back in the studio on day two, we will focus in more depth on the qualities of composition, colour mixing, colour harmonies and tonal balance. Our skill as artists will come into play, employing artistic licence to help the painting become more dynamic, developing the work on a larger scale towards a final piece.
