Jenny Aitken

Festival: 2019

I have been painting acrylic and oil landscapes and seascapes professionally for over 20 years, and I’m largely self-taught, having focused on photography whilst at university. My style has evolved throughout my career, and my subject matter broadened to include anything with inspiring light: from boats and harbours to portraits and still life. My process, which I share regularly in workshops and demonstrations, is about exacting and mixing colours accurately, controlling my palette to achieve the effects of light. The application of paint is necessarily a freer, looser process, as I aim for impressionistic vibrance, atmosphere and movement.
