Long shadows is a wonderfully rich painting, full of depth and atmosphere. It has lots of expressive marks, layers and washes creating a piece full of interest, and giving the viewer the impression of being within the woodland itself. It’s rich foreground palette of burnt umbers, sienna and ochres sing beautifully against the cooler blues, greys and petrol greens of the background. Adeles paintings are initially started from sketches she takes on her walks, in her local forests and woodlands. When back in her studios she paints very intuitively, recalling the sense of the place, the atmosphere, temperature and the forests sounds, letting her inks guide the way, this enables the painting to have a life of its own, creating a personal narrative with its viewer.
