‘Shepherds delight’ is an original landscape painting by Georgie Dowling depicting sheep exploring the fields at sunset, inspired by the walk to Orrest Head in the Lake District. Thick paint has been applied with a palette knife to convey the undulating shapes of the hills. The sheep are depicted with simple marks and are full of character as are the old stone walls. The painting has an interesting and varied texture which carries onto the edge of the canvas.

Georgie Dowling artist with Wychwood Art. Georgie was raised in rural West Wales surrounded by rolling hills and patchwork fields, no doubt influencing her current artistic practice. Having moved to Cheltenham to study Fine Art she has now based herself there working from her home studio. Inspired by the British countryside, she explores the beauty of the landscape through her oil paintings. “I work with thick strokes of paint applied with a palette knife creating simple shapes in attempt to highlight the flashes of colour and other defining details that stood out to me. 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 British landscape, sourcing colours and shapes that give me a sense of place. I’m fascinated by the relationship between the natural and man-made lines and forms in the landscape and how the two come together to create a harmonious aesthetic. I find myself drawn to the patterns of trees and hedgerows or structures of walls and paths that define the shapes in our landscape.” To discuss works by Georgie Dowling please contact deborah@wychwoodart.com, or call 07799 535765 / 01869 338155.
