A 30x30cm palette knife oil painting on cradled panel. From a series of work inspired by an afternoon spent exploring the landscape around the Seven Sisters cliffs in the South Downs. There was a huge sense of space at this location combined with intriguing shapes and lines in the textural, undulating landscape. The weather was unsettled with the strong winds along the coast, but the ever-changing light brought out an amazing array of colour in the land and sea. The use of palette knife and think paint portrays the undulating, wildness of the land, creating substantial texture throughout the piece.
Georgie Dowling artist with Wychwood Art.
Georgie was raised near the coast in rural West Wales surrounded by rolling hills and farmland, no doubt influencing her current practice. Having moved to Cheltenham to study Fine Art she has now based herself there. Work is split between painting en plein air across the country, capturing elements of the surrounding landscape, and working in the studio.
“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 land and sea, sourcing colours and forms that give me a sense of place. The coastline is of particular interest to me; the continuous momentum of the sea and everchanging light is an endless source of inspiration ”
