The Saltaire Studio
This is an original oil and cold wax landscape painting which you can see me create from start to finish. It was a little bit tricky as there was a gap of a week between me starting and finishing the painting so how it started out was very different to how it ended up.
My time for painting is very limited so when I do get a couple of days completely free I like to scale up and let loose on a large pieces of Arches paper.
I'm not really sure where the inspiration for this painting came from other than the dark autumnal colours; it isn't a scene that I recognise. Sometimes a painting just comes about because of the colours that I want to use and I was really wanting to create a large scale imposing clouds scene.
During my artist residency at Brisons Veor, Cornwall, in 2018 I published a daily visual blog on my facebook page www.facebook.com/PaulaDunnArtist. It was my way of keeping in touch with friends and family but I also had some really wonderful interactions with other artists and people living in and around Brisons Veor. The intention was to share progress with my paintings but also my adventures exploring the landscape and dealing with the ever changing weather. This is part 1 of a three part blog which publishes my daily blog.
