'Gloaming coast' is an original oil painting on fine canvas portraying a view out to sea from the beach as the sun is setting. The sky is a warm muted orange, contrasting with the deep blues in the sea. The waves and ripples in the water reflect the colour of the sky. Interference paint has been worked into the shore to convey the changing colour of the wet sand in the light, the paint shows a glowing sea green from different angles and light direction. Thick paint applied spontaneously with a palette knife was used to the sand and rocky foreground. The painting is on a deep edge canvas with painted white edges.
Georgie Dowling artist with Wychwood Art.
Georgie was raised near the coast in rural West Wales surrounded by rolling hills and farmland, no doubt influencing her current practice. Having moved to Cheltenham to study Fine Art she has now based herself there. Work is split between painting en plein air across the country, capturing elements of the surrounding landscape, and working in the studio.
“I work quite quickly and my marks are spontaneous and impulsive, I embrace happy accidents and enjoy the life that can be seen in a painting when the artist works instinctively. Inspiration comes to me while exploring the land and sea, sourcing colours and forms that give me a sense of place. The coastline is of particular interest to me; the continuous momentum of the sea and everchanging light is an endless source of inspiration ”
