Rebecca Mclynn’s abstract landscape paintings are inspired by the detail in nature and the power that wild, rugged locations and untamed weather can have over our emotions and feelings of well-being.
Using photography, mixed media and expressive mark making, Rebecca’s colourful, oil paintings capture the essence of a place. Using only a hint of figuration, she allows the viewer to contemplate on their own reminiscences of the wild places they may have visited or explored.
