New artworks by Jane Skingley are available to buy online and in our art gallery with Wychwood art. Jane Skingley is a painter of seascapes, landscapes and still life subjects, based in Berkshire. She has exhibited work at the Royal College of Art, The Royal Society of Marine Artists and Glyndebourne opera house in East Sussex. Jane’s mainly large scale paintings focus on the mood evoked by a place. She says: “I spent much of my childhood sailing around the British coast which remains one of my key inspirations. “I am interested in the emotional response we get from the landscape, whether on a summer’s day or during a storm. We are drawn to the power and tranquillity of the elements and few of us are unaffected by them.” “I particularly love the colours of the coastline from vibrant blues to warm greens and estuary greys. I often work on a scene over and over again interpreting it slightly differently each time with subtle changes of colour and mood.” Jane’s paintings are notable in the way they capture the energy and power of the elements. Her style is free and her paintings brave, often simply featuring just the sea and sky, no other subject. Sometimes headlands or rocks are included as well as acres of wet sand. Working in oils, Jane builds up layers of colour to achieve richness and depth. The paintings are produced instinctively evoking mood and atmosphere rather than a search for realism. Paint is applied by brush, hand, palette knife and even by flicking and each painting takes weeks to complete all the layers.
