Jane Skingley paints contemporary seascape, landscape, flower and bird paintings that evoke a feeling of calm. Her work is about capturing moments. It could be a beach that she knows well, or the view from her daily country walks. Images may be based on a fleeting memory or a place that is visited over and over, each time seeing something different.
She aims to capture the essence of the place and the feeling that makes its special, maybe the sweep of the shore or curve of a field.
She has exhibited work at the Royal College of Art, The Royal Society of Marine Artists and Glyndebourne opera house in East Sussex. In 2017 she undertook a large commission for the WWF on the subject of climate change which was exhibited at the Houses of Parliament.
Her work is regularly exhibited at art fairs in London and New York, including the Affordable Art Fair and the London Art Fair.
Luskentyre Beach is a small sized seascape painted in oil on board. Painted in soft blue, green and ochre, the painting brings a sense of calm and tranquility. It is inspired by the beautiful Luskentyre Beach on the Isle of Harris in Scotland.
I build up layers of paint to give a sense of depth. Clouds, sea and waves are created by flicking paint at the canvas and smoothing it in to bring energy and movement to the artwork. This process gives a semi abstract feel to the sea an the sky.
My work is about capturing moments. It could be the beach that I went to as a child, or on a family holiday, or the view from my daily country walk. Images may be based on a fleeting memory or a place that is visited over and over, each time seeing something different.
I aim to capture the essence of the place and the feeling that makes its special, maybe the sweep of the shore or curve of the land.
The painting is signed with initials on the back and framed in a Farrow and Ball School House White painted frame.
