Lynne Porter is a mixed media artist working in oils, acrylics, collage, and various dry media. She lives on the east coast of Yorkshire, England and is inspired by the coast and countryside of the area, She loves to experiment, and is particularly driven by texture and colour.
I work by going out into the landscape and making loose, painterly sketches, using all my senses to get the right expressive feel. I bring the sketches back to the studio and select areas by tearing them out. These are pasted into sketchbooks. I may add collage and/or mark making to these. The results inspire the paintings and, I hope, capture that 'sense of place'.
