Hello friends and fellow artists - thank you very much for all your kind comments and support! :D My favorite painting hero is Frederick Edwin Church from 19th century U.S.A.  If you would like to keep in touch and learn some of the techniques I use for painting and selling, please subscribe to my online academy, a full-length painting tutorial will be added in the next few months:

Cheers and happy painting! -Nathanael


nprovis's Profile Picture
Nathanael Provis
Nathanael Provis has always loved beautiful and dramatic scenery. Born in New Zealand's picturesque South Island, he soon took a strong interest in the surrounding landscape's dramatic snow-capped mountains, lakes, native bush, and waterfalls.

As a young child, he enjoyed drawing scenes on paper and cardboard, often using colour pencils, crayons, and even felt-tip pens.

It wasn’t until the turn of the century that Nathanael decided to take up a serious career as a landscape artist. Today he uses high-permanence oil paint and stretched canvas, linen, and prepared board as preferred mediums.

He enjoys taking time out to explore and photograph mountain scenery both in N.Z. and overseas, and he has also painted in the United Kingdom, U.S.A. and Canada. Largely self-taught, Nathanael has a deep passion for the traditional styles of landscape painting and is greatly influenced by the local and international masters of Realism and Luminism, in particular the 19th century ‘Hudson River School’ artists of North America.
Many of his paintings, featuring distant rugged peaks, glistening snows, and tranquil lakes can be found in private collections throughout New Zealand, and other parts of the world. His numbered collections of works include: The "Deep South" series, the "My Canterbury" series, the "My Kind of N.Z." series, the contemporary "Landfall" series, and more recently, the “Moonlight Adventure” series, and the “Mighty Peaks of Aotearoa” series, painted on 10-foot long canvases.
