Cotswold Landscape is an Original Oil Painting by Eleanor Woolley. Painted plein air, and finished in the studio this painting depicts the beautiful rolling hills near Rollright, one of the artists favourite places. Rollright is steeped in Mystery and Legend , with many a story of the Rollright Stones themselves. Some say the Stones known as the Kings men are petrified men, first mentioned in Camden's Britannia, written in Latin, in 1586. The views from Rollright are wonderfull, the artist has captured the expansive of land and sky with its dramatic clouds and rolling hills, painted in realistic colours. This view is from the Stone known as the Kings Stone.

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;
