Lindsay Rough - contemporary artist

Much of my work is abstracted from memory and imaginings. Vibrant and colourful still lives and landscapes in a semi-abstract style result. My paintings develop from initial ideas of landscape or objects, and through colour and texture become realisations of an idea of place or subject. I am currently exploring the delights of using gold and silver leaf in my work - it's exciting but demanding!
The gallery page of this website gives examples of my work, with medium and size. These change as work is sold and new work created. Please email me for prices.

Seascape mixed media on canvas 30x90cm

I am constantly entranced by colour, and try to engage the eye with purity of tone and value. I enjoy the quality of the paint itself, particularly when combined with a medium for texture or additional body. The use of other media enhances texture and contrast.
I generally work on canvas, paper or board, with acrylics, watercolour and mixed media. Paintings on canvas are normally unframed to hang directly on the wall, while other supports will need to be mounted and framed.

I have work in private collections and have exhibited in London, Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire. I have taken part in the Herts Open Studios event in 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2012,and 2016, and also took part in Harrow Open Studios in June
