A 30x25cm palette knife oil painting on canvas painted en plein air on Cleeve common near Cheltenham. The painting portrays the view over the textural ground of the common and towards the hills in the distance appearing blue in the summer morning light. A palette knife was used to convey the undulating ground and irregular gorse bushes, creating a varied and interesting texture.
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 ”
