Honiton based Linda Wilkes has studied wildlife and its habitat in meticulous detail for thirty-five years.Not only does she capture the character and intricacies of the native wildlife but also the flower and fauna.
Inspired by the natural world, Linda finds there are so many subjects and ideas to choose for a painting. With a lot of thought going into the composition and choosing a light source, the mood is an important aspect of her painting.
Working in Gouache and using an airbrush for the skies or background, Linda then blocks in the basic shapes and tones, and applies layers of paint to build up the image. She also works in Oils and Acrylic; the subject will determine the medium.
