Inspired by Wells - Fiery sunset over Wells Quay (#IBW_07)
About: A contemporary collection of mixed media original paintings by Norfolk based artist Linda Pattrick. Linda lives and paints in Wells-next-the Sea on the stunning North Norfolk coast. From the coastal paths, walks along the shores and in the port, Linda expresses her insights and inspirations on canvas, depicting the many spectacular changes throughout the seasons witnessed on the broad landscapes of sea and land. ‘When I see an inspiring view, I take many photos combined with memories of the colours and emotions I felt. I then consider how I wish to paint my observations, decide the canvas dimensions, and plan the placement of the image on the canvas.’ Linda works intensely to jazz music whilst combining images observed on her travels to produce these exceptional paintings.
