For Lucinda, direct observation is key. A series of sketches in watercolour and oil on site is where apainting usually begins getting the information down in front of the subject. The play of light and colour at different times of the day is fascinating and provides a rich source of subject matter whichcontinues to create a compelling necessity to paint.
Lucinda has an obsession with getting the mood and atmosphere of the light, colour and feel of the subject down quickly so that the essence of it is captured. To be outside in front of the subject creates excitement and it is at this part of the process that she is most keen to catch at this early stage; this feeling. Later, this may be worked on at length either as a drawing, watercolour or oil sketch to get the salient elements of the subject down. Then a studio based larger painting will begin with close reference to the gathered visual notes. Lucinda returns to favourite subjects and use further sketches and paintings to supplement any work in progress.
