Jan Paynter

My art is inspired by nature and colour…

Throughout my life I have enjoyed recording what I see through photography, simple sketches and journals.

Also, I have been privileged to visit many places where various types of art by local and renown artists have been exhibited. This has influenced the way I approach my painting. I am especially inspired by past artists such as Rembrandt, Van Gogh, Manet, Monet, Mary Cassatt, JW Waterhouse, J Singer Sargent, Constable, Picasso, Frida Kahlo, and Georgia O’Keeffe(& many more).

When painting, it is the contrasts that excite me while trying to establish perspective and harmony.. So, for me painting has become another way of expressing my experience of the world around me.
