Wilderness Painting - Bushcraft - Adventure

Painting is one of the best ways I have found to express myself
and to explore the world within and around us.

Influenced by observations and thoughts as well as words of great people,
I create Inspirational Paintings...

Images that will enrich my life by provoking questions & self reflection,
in other words, Art that aims to elevate the Spirit,
Paintings that make me and hopefully others Thinkโ€ฆ

By using simple deserted landscapes
combined with dramatic skies to set a tone or mood,
the Artwork delivers a symbolic message...

A message that embodies and symbolizes
a particular human value, a feeling or Spirit;
to enhance, illuminate and to better understand...
What is Best or Worse in Them.

Ric and Petrus. Partners in adventure

Hey! My name is Ric. I am passionate about painting in the wilderness, bushcrafting, camping and everything else related to the great outdoors. My goal is to bring the love I have for nature to others. I want people to become more aware of whatever is left of our natural world, and hopefully becoming respectful of it, or at least, more connected to it again. I hope to do this by painting and documenting my adventures on my YouTube Channel.

On this website you can find:

- Some of my work for sale here

- Updated lists of the gear I use for bushcrafting and painting

- Free basic painting lessons for those that want to "give it a go"

- Links to video playlists of my wilderness adventures, pleinair painting and bushcraft

- And sometimes, a wilderness painting workshop. Those are rare, so make sure to subscribe to the newsletter to stay on top of it.

I am mostly active and engaged with viewers on YouTube but I post daily photos on Instagram also. You can connect with me and say hi on the social media links below if you like:

bushcraft Education

The wonderful school called the woods, some special people in my life, books and that great thing called YouTube.

ART Education

BA, Illustration and Fine Art at Swanseaโ€™s Institute of Higher Education, University of Wales - UK

Note: I did not learn how to paint in college since representational art and traditional skills were frowned upon by art teachers at the time. I didn't feel like throwing paint in a canvas to "express my emotions", nor felt like creating useless contraptions to be displayed as "art " in an installation. Hence why I studied traditional illustration instead.

So when it comes to painting, I am mostly self taught.
