Before starting the actual painting, as well as the pencil sketches, I produced a few preliminary paintings to show the client.
Although none of them are finished yet, it was enough to get a feel for the final piece. Seascape Four, particularly, as by painting 2 100cm x100cm canvases side by side, I gained an idea of the scale of the piece.
Contemporary British artist, Jacqueline Hammond, is renowned for producing strong, punchy images that are rich in texture and colour. A prolific painter and multidisciplinary artist, she exhibits widely and is commissioned by individual clients, collectors and high profile brands.
Jacqueline’s inspiration comes from direct observation: subject matter is plucked from the world encountered every day. Some ideas evolve, others are reactionary. Thought-provoking themes explore today’s society, the media and cultural theory.
Whether inspired by the street or the sea, Jacqueline’s work has an edge: her paintings are consistently striking. Her natural disposition is to let the paint dictate the creative process, trusting the medium and her mind’s eye to translate the vision.
