Painting is not just a passion for ‘plein air’ (on-site) artist Victoria, but an obsession – one that has paid off with coveted accolades in numerous Exhibitions and Art Shows including First Prize and Best Exhibit at The 2015 Royal Adelaide Show.
Victoria’s love of our great Australian landscape and her belief that the infinite beauty of nature is only revealed when painting outdoors, is reflected in her impressionistic paintings.
“I want the painting to feel spontaneous and of the moment; brushstrokes to be instinctive, spirited and textural. This is easier to achieve outdoors where there is a greater urgency because of the constraints of time, light and weather. I strive to paint with an observant eye and a loose hand.”
Victoria’s greatest reward is the warmth of the viewer’s response when they see her work, which she hopes captures her feelings towards our beautiful country.
