Oliver has established himself as a successful landscape artist, working exclusively in watercolour. With Oliver's work we explore the impact of light, the weather, and the seasons and how these combine to achieve paintings that are evocative and atmospheric.
The existing pier was built in Victorian times, and despite a chequered past of usefulness it is now an integral part of the seafront, particularly as a base for local diving schools, and local boat trips. 'Moonfleet' - the large boat moored up in this painting - is a Dutch cutter that is now used successfully as a sailing training vessel, and has become a familiar sight in the bay.
As I wandered along the footpath above the yacht club that affords a pleasing view across to Ballard Down I couldn't helping noticing the mellow, early morning light. Despite some strong highlights there was still a nice softness to the light, creating a sense of calm in the bay."
