About Kristin Rawcliffe

 
 
  • Biography
    I love painting. I want my paintings to be more than photographic representations, I want them to tell stories and convey the emotions of the people they represent.
    I paint mostly in oils and acrylic, though I do use watercolour too. 
    I want to build energy and depth into what I do, and spend time building up studies to find the best way of putting across in paint what I want a painting to say; whether that's through colour, texture, brushmarks, composition or all of those elements.
    Reality is important to me and I am inspired by a range of realist artists from the Newlyn School to Lucien Freud.
