Paint, plants and people are her passions.
Rosemary is captivated by a rural lifestyle. Painting in both acrylic and pastel, she brings charm to portraits of animals and children. Floral and landscape works reveal her perspective of nature’s simplest wealth in blooms, birds and back roads.
Themes from everyday life inspire her. Her style can be realistic and at times impressionistic. Rosemary’s method begins with taking references from both life and photos, working out a design and creating tonal sketches. Capturing an atmospheric mood or personality is key. A scaled-up, refined drawing leads to a pastel painting on pastel paper or an acrylic painting on canvas. Colour choices often begin with a complimentary palette; however, can stray to emphasize bold contrast.
