Awaiting the Tides Return,Tenby
Jon Houser is a British painter, specialising in Landscape and Seascape paintings in oils. The beautiful Pembrokeshire landscape surrounding Jon’s home, is the inspiration for his work. It is a landscape which includes the natural deep water harbour of the Milford Haven Waterway, Daugleddau Estuary and the dramatic West Wales Coastline. Award winning, Sandy Beaches punctuate this breathtaking shoreline adding to this dramatic scenery.
"My work focuses on the Light in the Landscape and creating this Light through colour and tone"
Jon makes small, rapidly executed, oil and pencil sketches on location to capture the essence of a scene. The material gathered out in the landscape, is used to feed back into his studio paintings. But sometimes, a work will be painted solely on location or “Plein air” as this type of painting is referred too. Jon will also paint Still Life and Flowers as an interlude to landscape painting.
Jon was Awarded Best “Plein Air painting” at the 2017 Fresh Paint Competition held by Picton Castle Studio’s and Fine Art Commissions London. Jon’s work is held in private collections worldwide and at the National Library of Wales

Painting of the Month
This little 6″x 8″ oil was used for as a sketch for a larger commissioned painting of Barafundle Beach. Jon painted it in November with the low, late Autumn light illuminating the sea to dramatic effect. While making this study, a family were enjoying a stroll on the beach providing interest and prospective to the painting.
