Finding Hope is a wonderfully fresh and vibrant painting by artist Adele Riley. Her love of painting forestscapes in all their seasons, takes her on many walks to sketch her local woods for inspiration. This painting, with its high colour palette of greens, yellows and pinks, can’t fail make you feel like you’re sitting amongst its dappled sunlit trees and spring flowers. Adele’s constantly chasing light in her work and this painting certainly delivers!
Adele Riley, painter and illustrator, is available for sale online and in our art gallery at Wychwood Art. Adele Riley as a British-born artist living in Gloucestershire, I'm surrounded by some of the most natural and inspiring surroundings in the UK, well-placed to benefit from a huge variety of light, texture, and drama – perfect for what I do.
I usually begin by sensing the subject, sometimes using a photo or a sketch to extract weather, light, horizons and shapes to commit the scene to canvas with a variety of media and paint.
What I fear most is repetition, so I experiment a lot with media and colour, asking questions of the fresh and the new, trying things out (getting things wrong), but all the time learning and looking to improve.
Having studied Illustration at Epsom School of Art, I have always continued to learn and develop from my experiences and travels. Not having a formal arts grounding I found to be a positive thing, as I could appreciate painting by it’s many disciplines. I learned more by challenging the rules of fine art, as well as applying them. It helped drive my enthusiasm until I arrived at a style of painting that represents me as an artist.
In addition to painting, I teach art to adults and children both through my business based in Gloucester, and in surrounding local schools.
My paintings are for sale, price on application, and all are available as a print
