Lindsay Pickett | Profile

 

Current works for sale: Lindsay Pickett

 

I currently live and work in west London from home and I am also into keeping fit such as running and practising basic Yoga. I also have taught art to adults part time.

My main practice involves painting with oils on canvas, linen and board. 

I start with a basic study of a composition idea, take it further as a small watercolour painting as a final idea and then develop it more as the finished oil painting.


I use photographs to create a visual reality that can be convincing at times and especially if I want to get the likeness of a person’s face.

Using photographs to work from has been good for me because it has taught me to use observational skills and improve them.

A lot of what I now paint is something that I have mainly taught myself.

I enjoy painting a lot because it gives the imagery more colour and character as well as being hands on.
