Original Contemporary Cornish Landscape Paintings by Cornish Artist Diane Griffiths.
As you can see, living in Cornwall is a huge part of my inspiration; the dramatic cliffs, vast ever-changing skies, sparkling seas, and just an overwhelming sense of space and freedom.
I love spending time in the landscape and it’s no surprise that it’s what I enjoy to paint the most. For me it’s not just about recognising the landscape but recognising an emotion it evokes, the memories that get created and the connections you make which keeps you coming back for more.
My work is created in a combination of acrylics, oils and enamels; I enjoy experimenting with the quick-drying precision of acrylics, the juicy thick texture of oils and the startling affects you can get with enamels. It’s a way of painting which always surprises and challenges me.
As an artist I want to capture your interest within seconds.
They say that a picture is worth a thousand words.
I like to talk to my readers in a glance.
