Landscape paintings and prints by me, contemporary British landscape artist, Lynne Roebuck. Both painter and printmaker, I make original lino prints and original oil paintings. ("Contemporary" means ‘made by a living artist’)
I make landscape paintings and prints inspired by the British countryside, seaside/coastline and its surrounding seas. My collection of original, unique art, currently includes Northumberland, Yorkshire, and The South Hams in Devon.
I'm always adding to my gallery of contemporary landscape paintings and prints, covering the North of England and the much painted Southern Counties.
Having grown up in the countryside, I developed an appreciation for our landscape at an early age. From the single blade of grass and the magical, mysterious thing we call a cloud, to the epic vista, it all still fascinates this kid.
Britain is an artist's scenery paradise
Since visiting Devon, Northumberland, Cumbria, Lancashire, Pembrokeshire in Wales and Inverness in Scotland to name a few, I can safely say Yorkshire, where I'm based, is not alone in its distinctiveness and diversity of scenery. The variety is in fact a characteristic of the UK terrain from the tip of Scotland to the foot of Cornwall. No wonder the British landscape has been represented by artists in paint and other media for more than 250 years.
Naturally, Yorkshire subjects dominate my collection at this time, though I'm always hopeful of being able to paint further afield. I already have many sketches, of 'foreign' parts elsewhere in the UK, waiting for me to work-up into finished art.
Making landscape art in 2018/19
Updated: 7 October 2018
I'm continuing to work steadily through my sketches of Devon and Northumberland locations. Hopefully, I'll finish a number of larger paintings, and also linocut prints, of these lovely places in the beginning of next year. I also have plans to use 'projects' to help with my productivity and artistic evolution in 2019. Projects where I concentrate on an aspect of how I make my art, or a specific location. Roseberry Topping and Whitby are candidates for place 'projects' next year (2019).
Changing light on land and sea
A definite project for 2019 is one focussed on studying light more closely. The weather is such a terrific feature of the British Isles, because we're in the Northern Hemisphere and surrounded by the sea. So much so, that a landscape painting without attention given to the light will never truly capture it IMHO.
Of course I have my website shopping basket to launch, finished paintings to varnish and frame, a range of giclée art prints to source and exhibitions to organise (no peace for the wicked?). Altogether, these are keeping me from my easel as 2018 winds down into winter.
The best place to buy my contemporary British landscape art, if you're in Yorkshire, UK, where I'm based is from my galleries. You'll be able to view my landscape art there and, in the case of my lino prints, choose between framed and unframed options. You'll also be able to ask questions and get advise about buying, framing, displaying and protecting original linocuts and paintings – and you won't pay extra for this extra service. They are welcoming, knowledgable, helpful people, who won't pressurize you to buy, so do visit them if you're in the area.
I'm currently working to make it possible to buy my landscape art from this website. I was hoping to achieve it last year (2017), though it appears the goal posts on the internet itself are moving so it's delayed things a little bit.
