View From Symonds Yat 7

I have been inspired to paint a series of landscapes of the Hereford countryside, where I was born and lived for 7 years in Moreton-on-Lugg. This is from a series “wet on wet” oil paintings of the views from an area in Herefordshire called Symonds Yat - paintings of the River Wye and surrounding countryside, looking down from Symonds Yat and throughout a Year’s seasonal changes
I have been struck by the sheer array of colours that Nature herself creates and mixes. I hope you too will be struck by the beauty and variety of these colours.

About the artist

Emma Cownie

Born in Hereford, educated in Cardiff, I am a self-taught artist who lives in Swansea. I love light and colour. In my art I am drawn to light and shadows and how they shape our emotions. I use oil on linen canvas mainly. I remember visiting the South of France as a teenager and being mesmerized by the dazzling light, I have been attempting to capture that excitement about light in my paintings ever since. I particularly love the natural world, animals and landscapes. I am also drawn to empty places like churchyards, woods and hills. When I paint in oils I usually paint the light first and then layer the shadows and mid-tones. I try and make my colours bold and bright but as realistic as possible. I aim to make people look at the ordinary and see the extraordinary beauty in it.
