Matt Ryder

Matt is an award-winning British artist living and working in Dubai, UAE. A lifelong painter inspired by the natural world, and the beauty of nature.

After taking the leap to professional artist Matt quickly established himself and gained critical acclaim for his landscapes and florals, locally and internationally. Painting both extensively from life and also from photos in the studio, Matt focuses on light, colour temperature and beautiful brushwork to bring his paintings to life.

Matt’s work has been featured in numerous publications and podcasts including International Artist magazine, American art collector, Plein Air magazine, Fine art connoisseur, Plein Air podcast, American art collective podcast, Art dealer diaries and more. He is a highly sought after instructor and has taught, demonstrated and exhibited extensively all over the world.


In this three-day masterclass Matt will cover all aspects of his oil painting techniques for painting both in and out of the studio. By the end of the three days you will have a better understanding of colour temperature, values, colour matching, simplification and creating loose impressionistic brushwork while creating realistic forms.
