David Tress-Landscape painting retreat
David Tress landscapes are highly sought after by collectors all over the world. This is a unique opportunity to learn from one of the UK’s most respected landscape artists the art of creating great landscapes.
David Tress has lived in West Wales since 1976, and the landscape of this part of Britain forms the subject of many of his paintings. He has exhibited in Wales, England, Ireland, France, Holland and America and has works in public collections including: The National Museum of Wales, The Contemporary Art Society for Wales, The National Library of Wales, MOMA Wales, The Guildhall Art Gallery City of London, and Pallant House Gallery Chichester.
‘Tress works into Nature, clawing into his surfaces
in a mixture of media, creating a thicket of line or impasto, removing it, retreating, beneath mobile,
airy skies. His practice is only marginally less
intuitive than Joan Eardley’s in Aberdeenshire, in sunlight or under snow, where the fickle weather,
hot or cold, was at the core of the work.
Tress is arguably the most recent consistent
contributor to expressionist landscape painting
