Painted in oil in Gloucestershire. Dropping my kids off at school early in the morning during the winter months, when we lived in Glos, I got to see some beautiful frosty mornings. This time, the frost was still on the field in the foreground shadow, and the sheep were in the gentle sunlight which was emerging through the mist. I love ochres and blues which is what caught my eye and made me stop and paint.
Early Morning Frost on the pasture by Tin Odescalchi
Tin Odescalchi's paintings fall within the traditional conception of landscape composition but also display a primary concern for the performance of the paint itself. Tin works with great immediacy direct from the subject with bold mark-making. Tin’s work has its roots in the tradition of Constable and Turner, but is characterised by the handling of paint more recognisable in artists such as Auerbach, and Freud. Tin has exhibited with many notable galleries both nationally and internationally. Tin’s landscapes are a beautiful addition to any room.
