Project Description

Harriet Eagle

Having studied Fine Art at university in South Africa, and a career as a graphic designer in Oxford, it has been a joy to return to the paintbrush and canvas more seriously.

My approach to painting is largely intuitive and energetic. Initially time is spent on more considered compositional drawings. I then layer and scrape back the colours mark making in an attempt to capture the delight and harmony of my subject. I am drawn to the landscape, especially the sea, spending as much time as possible in Cornwall where the light and natural beauty provide a wealth of inspiration
