Lyn Littlewood

I paint landscapes, flowers and quirky animals using different techniques and materials. I enjoy experimenting with pastels, watercolour and collage using found and painted papers.

I paint loosely in watercolour and pastels, enjoying both landscapes and flowers. My paintings are rich and vibrant in colour, mostly inspired by my wonderful surroundings.

Each day I wake up to the incredible colours and atmospheres of the changing seasons spread before me around my home above Hathersage, close to Stanage Edge. From my kitchen window, the shifting light drifting across the moors picks out not just the greens and browns but every hue of pink and indigo, lilac and ochre. It is wonderfully inspiring.

I have always had a need to express myself by drawing and painting leading to a BA in textiles.The love of texture and colour gained from this helps me develop innovative ideas in watercolour and pastels to tell the story of the world around me. Especially the surrounding countryside that is so close to my heart.
