As a landscape painter living in Cheshire Ged Mitchell does not have to look too far for inspiration. “It’s on my doorstep and the ever-changing light and seasons in this country make it a painter’s paradise.
I suppose like a lot of artists, what my work represents is escapism. Maybe something deep inside conjures up the images portraying the idea of a safe haven – a good, calm, peaceful place.
The thought of applying the first brush strokes to a blank canvas or piece of paper can be a very daunting one both for amateur and professional painters alike. For me it’s the best bit. With my palette of just six colors I start by applying several very wet washes randomly with no clear thought of what is going to take place at this stage. I know with experience how the colors will react with one another and what effects can be created throughout this procedure. Timing here is fundamental.
Manipulating these early washes to create the initial areas of interest is great fun, after which a bit more thought is required in organizing the focal points and building up the painting to its conclusion.”
THIS IS THE BEST PRICE YOU WILL FIND ANYWHERE FOR THE SAME PIECE!
