Mixed Media by Galina Zimmatore
Magical Thatcher Rock
I am a local artist based in Torquay, my passion is for seascapes, landscapes and abstract paintings. Living next to the sea I am fascinated by the ever changing seas and skies as well as the beautiful Devon landscape.
I initially trained as an Interior Designer which gave me professional insight into colours and design. Later I did art courses in various styles and subjects including abstracts, portraits, landscapes and palette knife techniques. Most of my pictures are painted in oil or acrylic on canvas using palette knives and brush.
The painting is mixed media on board with a resin finish which produces a crystal-clear, glass-like finish that enhances and protects the artwork.
Near to my home on the South Devon coast is one of my favourite coastal walks which leads down to the majestic and magical Thatcher Rock. Recently I made a video of this walk called “Sketching at Thatcher Rock” which you can see on my YouTube channel - Galina Z artist. That walk was the inspiration for this painting.
