Lou Thomas - Acrylics, Watercolours,Oils
& Pastel paintings

Lou says:

"I have a particular fascination with light and reflection and the technical demands these offer.

Painting seascapes in oil and watercolour both delight and challenge me in equal measure. I love to capture the dynamism of wave movement but strive to depict the subject in a light and transparent way despite its bold strength.

Another fascination is mixed media marbling and watercolour. Marbling creates abstract grounds onto which other mediums can be applied and I use these to create landscape works of different moods. The application of resists can control but equally randomise effects enhancing work, e.g. salt and sand create texture, depth and help atmospheric effect. The effects are random and unrepeatable in nature.

By contrast some of my oil works are textural impasto pieces which in themselves create shadow and light reflection through the paint relief, helping the portrayal of the floral subject. I have also had success with small abstract oil works which I sell through local galleries."
