About Sophie Hall

 
 
  • Biography
    I create still life oil paintings using the traditional techniques of the old masters from whom I take my inspiration. I paint from life to create moments of quiet stillness in the ever rushing world in which we live. The very nature of still life asks us to pause and take time in the day to consider the higher meanings in life. I feel this when I am working and it is what I attempt to transfer to the viewers of final works.

    I make as many of the elements of my works for myself by hand. This begins with making panels by stretching calico primed with rabbit skin glue over wooden panels I have cut to preplanned shaped and sizes. When these are dried I gradually apply layers of chalk gesso to create a smooth painting surface. After more drying I colour prime and varnish the panels to make them ready for painting. I also make my own varnish to be used, amongst other things, in various painting mediums. 

    Finally, I work as much on my own frames as possible by treating bare wood to give create my own style in accordance with the traditional feel of my paintings.
