Meet the Artist: Penny Hunt

About Meet the Artist: Penny Hunt

Based in the Yorkshire Dales, Penny’s studio gives wide open windswept views of mountains, moorlands and mist; her work is about the little things that make up that landscape of freedom, the places where you feel the full force of wind and weather and find some perspective on life.

Spending time outside is important to her, sketches made in the landscape are made using Wallace Seymour ancient drawing materials; stones and mud on specially prepared papers. Wallace Seymour make artist paints and are based in the same village, their handmade paints are ground from local rocks and used in Penny's paintings.

She will show how she works from the landscape, drawing using stones and mud on specially prepared papers so that she incorporates the actual landscape in her observations and pares it down to the simplest visual elements to develop her paintings, evoking the atmosphere of a place rather than the finer detail. Her paintings are made using oil paint and cold wax techniques, building up layers with rollers, rubber kidneys and squeegees, scraping back and working over, monoprinting with plants and adding finer detail with paintbrushes. This mix of printmaking and painting techniques will be demonstrated during the talk.
