All aspects considered, including the client’s preferences, this painting works the best. The painting establishes the position of the boat, which works better on the right. A fishing boat looks ‘prettier’ and the clouds are light and orangey but still with the blue tones. There are so many possibilities; there could still be a few more of these paint sketches. Now let’s see what the client thinks on Sunday.
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.
