A 35x25cm palette knife oil painting on canvas painted en plein are whilst staying on a farm in rural Zennor, St Ives. The painting depicts the view towards the local pub with a pattern of fields portrayed with thick strokes of paint. The contrast and relationship between the land and sea in this location was fascinating. The ragged, textural land was an interesting contrast to the quiet stillness of the setting; a handful of cars a day passed us by on the lane and all to be seen was a couple of farmhouses and the local pub. The task of capturing the textures of the land and sea whilst also conveying the stillness of the surroundings made for a captivating project. There was plenty to unpack in this irregular, beautiful landscape.

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, or call 07799 535765 / 01869 338155.
