This is painted from our garden in Somerset, where the top of the hill above the house shows off skies beautifully. I loved the drama and excitement of the threatening cloud, giving me little time to paint before the imminent drenching. Loose mark making with lines add to the drama.
Heavy Rain Approaching 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.
