River Path. A painting by Jacob Buckland

Welcome to the Black Raven Gallery at Dinefwr.

18 January – 29 March 2020

Jacob Buckland is a landscape painter who lives in Carmarthenshire. He studied Natural History Illustration at the Royal College of Art, graduating in 2003.

Jacob’s work features paintings and drawings of Welsh landscape and nature, based on direct observation and memory which explore colour and mark making, focusing on variations in weather and season.  Each piece represents a period of time spent looking and painting in the field. Colour washes are left to chance and combined with more precise lines, as a way of layering and reflecting both the structural and ephemeral qualities found in nature.
