Winner of the 2nd prize at the prestigious Sunday Times Watercolour Competition in August 2011, Jonathan Pitts is a young and emerging ‘en plein air’ landscape artist. Jonathan makes all his landscape paintings outside from start to finish. The aggression or calm in his work is a response to the landscape in front of him. He explores the visual rhythm and the interplay between weather and landscape as it unfolds. He paints based on what he observes and the way a place makes him feel, feeling as comfortable in the environment as the wildlife around him. Jonathan’s intense and challenging way of painting inspires him to take risks and encourages a more instinctive approach. He works in a way that does not allow much time for thinking or contemplation, relying on inspiration to show him the way.
