Eleanor Spalding Originals, Prints & Cards.
'En Plein Air' landscapes painted with oil-bars. Stunning originals, prints and cards.
Swanage-based artist Eleanor chooses to paint 'en plein air' wherever possible, which gives her work a freshness, as does her choice of materials. By using oil bar and oil pastels she is able to create wonderful textures that 'melt' into the paper. These materials have the buttery consistency of oil paint, but with the immediacy and ease of charcoals and pastels, which means she uses no brushes at all.
Her work often plays with the use of whitespace and rich, natural colours that explode from the centre of the frame in a vibrant and exhilarating way that captures the elements within a landscape, whilst creating a sense of movement.
We have a selection of her smaller originals, as well as prints and cards for you to buy online. Larger works, including some bigger prints can be seen in our gallery in Corfe.
