'Dancing sky' - 60cm x 60cm

‘Dancing sky’ – 60cm x 60cm – oil on canvas – £770

When I’m painting the sky, it’s moving all the time, changing light, changing colour, changing form. Here, I’m just trying to capture that energy.

 

'Sea pink' - 30cm x 30cm

‘Sea pink’ – 30cm x 30cm oil on canvas – £295

I had great fun with this, it came from a sketch done whilst walking along the Cornish coast. Working from that sketch when I got home liberated the painting from having to ‘be’ the right colour.

Solo show at Fowey River Gallery

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , on March 29, 2017 by Jill

Just about to deliver 34 paintings to Fowey River Gallery for my solo exhibition showing from 8th April – 23rd April 2017.

It’s been really fantastic making a large body of work, translating thoughts of and visions of Cornwall and sailing adventures beyond.

In the August of 2016 my partner and I were lucky enough to crew on the Aegle on a sailing trip in Greenland. An amazing, vast, beautiful, wonderful and vulnerable landscape, and an unforgettable adventure.

Couple - (Rosevine) - 30cm x 30cm

‘Couple’ – Rosevine – 30cm x 30cm – oil on canvas

I love time on the beach in Cornwall, Spring, summer, winter – sunny day or stormy, it’s always a place to inspire.

The sand tells stories of where people have walked, where children have played, and dogs have swam. These two paintings are from sketches made on the Roseland, at the beautifully named beach of Rosevine. They remind me of how I spent a lovely stolen couple of hours.
