My Love of Art & Nature ........

Ray Balkwill SWAc

There have been two continuous threads intertwined throughout my life from an early age. One has been my love of art, and the other my love of the natural world. Over the past three decades the wide-open spaces of sea, estuary and sky has been the mainspring of my art, and in particular the Exe Estuary and Dartmoor. For this latest series of paintings I chose to work in the studio from quick sketches and memory, as opposed to my usual practice of painting en plein air. This

approach allowed me to interpret the subject with more emotion, so this new work is about the ‘spirit’ of the landscape, rather than the landscape itself.
