View of the Lake


Availability: Sold Category:

View of the Lake by Lucy Davies.

“This painting was inspired by a Winter walk around our local nature reserve. I was captivated by the beautiful vegetation around the lake – the colours and tones of the leaves instead of being the lush green of summer were wonderful shades of taupe, straw and ochre. The painting is my interpretation of these observations, with the grasses and leaves making an almost abstract pattern through which the lake beyond can be viewed.”

Lucy Davies has original paintings for sale online with Wychwood Art Gallery. Lucy Davies trained at St Martins and Brighton and has a BA ( Hons) in graphic design, specialising in illustration. Lucy Davies has always enjoyed painting but it was not until her children finally flew the nest that she found time to fully concentrate on her passion and now paints full time from her studio at home in north London. Along with drawing and painting Lucy’s other passion is Cornwall and having spent every summer down at her parents’ caravan since childhood, she now spends as much time as she can on the north Cornish coast, painting and sketching the area she loves and knows so well. Lucy Davies draws her inspiration from the beautiful and sometimes wild coastal scenery of this area - the dramatic sea, rugged cliffs and stunning, golden beaches inform her work and provide the reference for her colourful, mixed media paintings. Texture, pattern and colour dominate her artwork and she uses a process of layering acrylic media to create the effect she wants. An underpainting or tonal wash will be overlaid with layer upon layer of paint or ink then some areas scraped or washed away to create a dynamic composition. Lucy will often carefully plan a picture so that once she starts painting she can work fast and spontaneously - adding finer detail later if required. Also fond of walking, Lucy will always take her camera and sketchbook with her on trips, to record new images so she has plenty of inspiration in the cold winter months when she’s tucked away in her studio back home. Lucy’s painting of a Cornish stone wall got her short listed to appear in the very first series of Sky’s Landscape Artist of the Year in 2015 and along with other galleries in the south of England, she is now delighted to be represented by Wychwood Art.
