Jerry Smith Artist

Landscape paintings inspired by
views from around the British Isles



Jerry has done several painting demonstrations for local art groups, focusing on oil painting techniques, colour theory and aerial perspective in the landscape.

Demonstrations can fit in with a regular meeting of a group and last around two hours.

If you belong to an art group and would like to book a demonstration, please get in touch for more details.


A 6-hour workshop typically with a group of around 12 people, studying oil painting with a landscape theme.

Over the course of the day, learn about under-painting, colour theory/mixing and numerous paint application techniques in order to produce a finished oil painting.

To discuss booking, equipment and materials etc. for a workshop, please get in touch via email or phone.

Art classes

Jerry is planning to resume running art classes at Curdridge Reading Room on Wednesday evenings.

The classes usually run for 10 weeks at a time, allowing time to develop painting skills in more depth, with a series of small projects, each covering a different landscape theme.

The main focus of the classes is to develop colour theory and mixing skills, which help to improve colour perception, particularly in regard to aerial perspective.

If you'd like to join the classes, please get in touch.

Private Tuition

If you can't commit to regular classes but would still like some tuition in oil painting or just drawing and sketching, Jerry can also provide private tuition for up to two people at a time from his studio or outdoors on location (weather permitting!).

A private lesson normally lasts around two hours and can cover any particular aspect of drawing or painting in a variety of mediums, or just focusing on colour theory, for example.

Please get in touch if you'd like to arrange some tuition.
