Allison Marshall studied ceramics at Falmouth School of Art in the late 1980’s. She has worked as an additional needs teacher for the last 20 years but has always spent time painting whenever she can.
Having used watercolour as a medium for many years to produce still-life paintings, she has recently discovered a technique using gum arabic and permanent inks to produce a unique visual style. Combining this technique with a new found interest in landscape photography Allison began to produce paintings that are quite different in terms of intensity of colour, and an abstract view of the landscape she has walked.
She now spends most of her time developing this newly discovered painting technique and enjoys the challenges and often surprising results it can produce.
Gum and Ink Seascape Paintings
Allison’s gum and ink seascape paintings showcase a harmonious blend of creativity and nature-inspired artistry. These captivating pieces reflect her unique approach to the traditional seascape genre. The use of gum and ink adds a distinctive texture and depth to her works, creating a visual experience beyond the ordinary. Each painting is a testament to the artist’s skill in capturing the essence of coastal landscapes.
