Sheila Marlborough is a local Sussex artist.

She works mostly in acrylics with landscape as a common subject, which is then made semi abstract, with the focus on colour and composition.

I just love the colours and the patchwork effect. It’s something I’ve been drawn to a great deal lately but which somehow never seems to quite work when I do it!

Observation and practice…

I also love this semi abstract idea, another concept I’ve been turning over in my mind lately. I love that there are recognisable elements but that you don’t have to be a slave to it.

Yes, those are trees, and that’s clearly sky and ground, but the rest? It can be anything you like!
