Growing up on the North Cornwall coast, Victoria Young-Jamieson was heavily influenced by the changing light of the different seasons, and the effect it has on the colours of the land, sky and sea. Her focus is her favourite stretch of coastline, from Bedruthan Steps to the Camel Estuary and Port Isaac.
Her paintings are abstract interpretations of these land and seascapes and leave the viewer plenty of room to interpret them in their own way.
‘We view the effects of light more than we see light itself. Sunlight on the coast exposes a fascinating variety of vibrant colours on the horizon.
“I try to capture a mood, to recreate the movement and texture of the landscape.
“I make studies and extract the colours, but the process of mixing the materials together often becomes more important than trying to replicate the image in front of me.”
