Lyn Burns FRAS
Painting and drawing have always been a part of my life. The majority of my works are landscapes, and many of the larger ones are somewhat sketchy - I like the drawing, the gesture and movement in the landscape. The natural world provides my subject matter. I tend to turn away from every part of the built environment to concentrate on the wild, the beautiful, or the quirky in the landscape. The sea has always had a strong pull for me, and I draw the waves, the water’s edge and the expanses of the ocean. Trees also provide wonderful shapes and lines - there are very few straight lines in my work, I like the twists and turns, the ins and outs. Being in the landscape, drawing from nature, is what I most like to do. I particularly like drawing with pastel, however using a variety of media has meant changes in style, experimentation and finding new ways of looking at things.
