Lewis Noble

Lewis Noble has lived and worked in Derbyshire since 1996. Over this time he has built a reputation as one of central England’s foremost artists. His focus lies in the physical and emotional impact of the landscape on the senses and how it the experience of being in landscape effects us as human beings. Lewis was  born in 1967 in  South London and studied  Fine Art at Birmingham from  1989 - 92, graduating with Honours. In recent years Lewis has focussed exclusively on painting the landscape. This provides the opportunity to experiment with "pure painting" whilst retaining an essential grounding in observation.

Lewis' work draws on the diverse landscapes of the Peak District, Scotland, Wales and France. Creating clear, defined bodies of work, he explores his chosen subject through changing emotions, movement, light & colour. Lewis is particularly well known in Derbyshire and was the county's Artist in Residence during 2001 as part of the Vickers Art Prize, when he held residencies at four prominent locations around the county including Chatsworth. He has held numerous solo exhibitions over the past ten years and his work can be found in some of the country's finest galleries. His work is in private collections in Britain, Australia and the USA.

Lewis Noble’s sensitive but energetic approach to landscape painting is an extremely powerful and beautiful display of movement, light and colour. Lewis primarily works with acrylics, oil and watercolours to create emotional artwork.

During this three-day course, Lewis will work with students to teach them how to capture their own individual responses to the landscape on paper and in paint. The course will take place in a series of workshops designed to retain an essential grounding in direct observation as well as experimenting with ‘pure painting’ and atmospheric abstract expression. Lewis is an experienced tutor who tailors his tuition according to each student’s needs and abilities.
