Aine Divine- Artists Statement

I have always been interested in painting and drawing people, there is so much to examine in a particular face and head. Watercolour paint perfectly describes skin, building it up in layers, you feel as though you are creating a living thing.

I love to work from life, to be fully attentive to what I’m painting and to follow my instincts when I make the marks. I mean, to not put everything down, but choosing what’s important and -without thinking about it- painting it down and going on to the next move. Keeping active. I am drawn to painting as a physical and mindful activity.

I paint commissions, teach and demonstrate as well as working on my own in the studio. I hope you enjoy looking at my paintings as much as I enjoyed painting them.
