Diana Booth Contemporary Devon Artist
The South Hams, Devon, has been my home for many years. Some years ago I returned to painting with renewed vision and energy exploring a vibrant approach to painting.
I delight in the flexibility, malleability and rich colour of oil paint to create contemporary, semi-abstract seascapes, landscapes, bird and flower paintings.
I enjoy using a palette knife and experimenting with various ways of applying the paint to achieve the desired effect. My work evolves as I constantly strive to capture the essence of my subject.
Holidays with family in New Zealand have particularly enthused me, and recently a trip to Alaska provided amazing inspiration. Whether at home or abroad the effect of constantly changing light on sea and landscapes, evoke strong emotions which I then attempt to express in my art. .
Unless otherwise stated, paintings are unframed deep edge canvas, white painted sides, ready to hang.
