Winter Shadows 26 is an Original Oil Painting by Eleanor Woolley. The Insitu Images of Winter Shadow 26 are pictured with Winter Shadows 27, another one of the Winter Shadow series. Pictures are sold separately. This painting is inspired by the long shadows cast on the pavement by the shoppers on a winters day. During Lock Down and the months that followed the Artists was particularly interested in the changing feel of the City Streets. Having frequently photographed and painted the streets of Cheltenham, the sudden quiet was very striking, with a strange sense of loneliness. There are contrasting tones of blue and pink, and the patches of yellow and pink leaves lead your eye around the picture.

Eleanor Woolley was born in the Channel Island of Jersey, and moved to Gloucestershire where she was drawn to the outdoors, always taking walks in the landscape. Her first true love for painting came from an inspirational Art teacher at Haberdashers Monmouth School for Girls where she started painting in Oils at thirteen years old. Here she learnt to paint using classic oil painting techniques, and was drawn to the figure from early life drawing lessons. During this period she was fortunate enough to work under Mary Fedden in her studio and with Portrait Sculptor Peter Lambda with whom she further developed her technique and composition. After gaining her BA Hons in Sculpture at Leeds University Eleanor travelled for some time in Asia before coming home to study Furniture making. Eleanor worked as a Cabinet maker and a Restorer before returning to Fine Art painting. Eleanor’s inspiration is taken from her surroundings where she has a love for the every day things, often passed by without a second thought. Eleanor’s paintings are vibrant, often painted Plein air and finished in the studio. Starting with bold outlines, many layers of paint are used to create the depth of colour. Her paintings are spontaneous, using washes of oil to create the desired form. Often finishing with a palette knife producing a pleasing texture. Her current work is inspired by the landscape of the Cotswolds, and contrasted with long shadows created by figures in urban landscapes. Instagram profile; https://www.instagram.com/woolleyellie
