Edwina Broadbent, Cornflower and Buttercups, Oil on Canvas 38 x 51.5cm
Edwina Broadbent works from her studio overlooking the sea, near the ancient Cornish fishing village of Mousehole.
The subject matter of her work varies from purely intuitive and abstract to images drawn from the wild elemental landscape of West Cornwall, still lives and the figure. Spontaneity and energy predominate to create dynamic compositions with the tension and balance of colour, shape, line, tone and texture.
Her paintings are peaceful but paradoxically full of energy. Her brushwork is dynamic and expressive but carefully considered. Her palette brims with light and colour.
