Louise Luton artists statement.
I create oil paintings inspired by nature. I combine naturalism with expressive colour to create something beautiful, quirky and a joy to look at.
I absolutely love to paint, and I love where I live, so my work is a reflection of the world I see around me.
I use colour in surprising ways, vibrant colours sit alongside neutral tones to create something pleasing for the eye.
I adore seeing an animal, or a view spring into life on my beautiful linen canvases. My expressive animal paintings on natural linen and striking landscapes demonstrate my passion for painting and for the rural countryside that surrounds my Salisbury studio.
I like exploring nature’s tensions - the animal is still but it could go at any second, the sunset is beautiful but soon it will be dark. I capture a moment in nature for a lifetime on canvas.
