Out on tour we have experienced the drama in nature, from the changes in the seasons to sitting in field margins interrupting a honey bee highway. The yellow stripes in Jane Hindmarch's paintings encapsulate the vibrance of rape seed at its peak. A block of incredible yellow fills your view against a late spring sky.
The sketches provide initial guidance on mark making and colour which is then amplified in larger scale oil paintings. Sketches help to pare down the image bringing forth the essential response to the subject matter. The development into paint attempts to enhance this connection with the original experience of being out in the landscape.
Sweeping brush strokes describe the bracing wind, the moving shadows and the early spring sunshine.
