Gill Gathercole

Festival: 2019

I like to paint landscape in oil and also mixed media. My landscapes are inspired by the beauty and wildness of places I know well and feel connected to – the Peak district and the Yorkshire coast. My work is intuitive, mainly from memories and imagination rather than a direct representation.

I aim to express the feeling of being out in the wilds through exploring the visual language of brush marks, building layers, drips, splashes, scratches, thin washes through to juicy impasto, and the wonder and joy of colour.
