‘Walking through the fields’ is an original oil painting by Georgie Dowling. The painting depicts a view of rolling hills in the Cotswolds with pairs of walkers making their way through the fields. The painting explores the variety of colour and field patterns we find in our landscape. The people are depicted with simple marks applied with a palette knife. This piece was inspired by the experience of exploring the local landscape in the lockdowns of 2020. The peace and space that wandering through the Cotswold fields provided through those challenging times is not to be forgotten. The aim of this piece is to give a sense of the same serene space found whilst exploring my local landscape. The paint is applied thickly with a palette knife creating an interesting and varied texture.

Georgie Dowling artist with Wychwood Art. 'I'm an artist based in Gloucestershire exploring the beauty of the British landscape through my oil paintings. I grew up in West Wales surrounded by rolling hills and fields which undoubtedly plays into my fascination with them. Having moved to Cheltenham to study Fine Art I have now based myself there to continue my artistic career. With the Cotswolds on my doorstep I am never short of inspiration. Inspiration comes to me while exploring the British landscape, sourcing colours and shapes that give me a sense of place. The feeling of stability and stillness that the view of a familiar landscape brings is what draws me to work with this subject matter. The process of reproducing the view brings me the same feeling of stillness I felt whilst I was there. 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. The effect animals have on the perception of a landscape is also something I am beginning to explore; characterful sheep or a dozing horse can alter the mood of the view that is being portrayed, making them a useful and interesting tool in conveying the feel of the day. ​Reference images are taken on walks or horseback as I'm wandering through familiar places and noting the patterns I pass; these then follow me into my home studio where the work is produced. The application of thick paint with a palette knife gives me a sense of sculpting the landscape allowing me to revisit the details I spotted. My work gives me the chance to explore the landscape as I see it from a distance.' To discuss works by Georgie Dowling please contact deborah@wychwoodart.com, or call 07799 535765 / 01869 338155.
