JANE POWELL ART
Landscapes, Seascapes and Big Skies
Affordable artworks for lovers of the coast and countryside that will enhance your home
So why landscapes, seascapes and big skies? Having grown up in rural Worcestershire, I have always found joy in expansive landscapes. As a child, I had a special place at the top of our lane where I would sit and could see for miles; it was exhilarating, like being on top of the world!
However, living in the landlocked Midlands does give me a hankering after the coast. Like many of us, I have always felt an affinity with the sea and can watch it for hours. I visit as often as possible with my sketchbook in hand to try and capture the true essence of a particular place at that moment in time.
I love painting outdoors and I feel truly alive when finding new ways to express the light, beauty and emotion in the landscape under the changing skies. Feeling the same excitement and wonder I felt in my childhood is what drives me to create my paintings. Oils and acrylics are my preferred mediums; working with a limited palette, I enjoy exploring abstract and impressionistic techniques using exciting colour combinations, exploring shapes, texture and experimenting with different mark-making implements.
I invite you to explore my Art Portfolio, original paintings, prints and cards are available to buy. Discover my influences and the inspiration behind my paintings. Get in touch if you see something you like or you have a favourite place you’d like captured in an original bespoke painting.
Just before Christmas, I received my landscape painting by artist Jane Powell. In fact, I was lucky enough to win the piece in her competition! I was totally blown away, as I've admired Jane's work for a long time - she's a brilliant and prolific land and seascape artist.
It is a view of Kilburn forest, from the top of the White Horse at Sutton Bank, North York Moors. It's a place we often walk as a family and this is one of our favourite spots. Jane has done an amazing job, working from one of my photos. The atmosphere is perfect and I love how she's used the colours to bring out detail and form. I have to stop and look for a while every time I pass it on the wall.
As well as being very talented, she's absolutely lovely to chat with too!
