A 40x40cm 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 colours in the land. 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 in rural West Wales surrounded by rolling hills and patchwork fields, no doubt influencing her current artistic practice. Having moved to Cheltenham to study Fine Art she has now based herself there working from her home studio. Inspired by the British countryside, she explores the beauty of the landscape through her oil paintings. “I work with thick strokes of paint applied with a palette knife creating simple shapes in attempt to highlight the flashes of colour and other defining details that stood out to me. 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 British landscape, sourcing colours and shapes that give me a sense of place. 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.” To discuss works by Georgie Dowling please contact, or call 07799 535765 / 01869 338155.
