I live in the Peak District and much of my painting reflects the beautiful countryside and buildings of this area. I work mainly in acrylic, although I do feel the need to experiment from time to time with other subjects and mediums.
I paint for the sheer joy of it, and hope that my paintings reflect my love of the countryside and my love of painting. There is no rhyme or reason as to what I feel the need to paint. Different moods seem to produce different paintings, and sometimes, I begin to paint a certain scene, and find it will go its own way and turn into something completely different. It's this element of surprise that thrills me every time, as you never know what a painting will finally become. Thank you for your interest. Dodie Lawton.
