Linda Wilkes’ work on show at Honiton Beehive
PUBLISHED: 18:30 28 November 2014
The Winter Whispers Exhibition is being staged at The Beehive until Monday, December 22.
Honiton-based Linda Wilkes has studied wildlife and its habitat in meticulous detail for 35 years.
Not only does she capture the character and intricacies of the native wildlife but also the flora and fauna.
Inspired by the natural world, Linda finds there are so many subjects and ideas to choose for a painting.
With a lot of thought going into the composition and choosing a light source, the mood is also an important aspect of her painting.
Working in Gouache and using an airbrush for the skies or background, then blocking in the basic shapes and tones, and applying layers of paint to build up the image. She also works in Oils and Acrylic; the subject will determine the medium.
