British landscape paintings and original prints made by contemporary UK landscape artist, Lynne Roebuck. My fine art prints and paintings are original and unique to me, made using oils or lino. ("Contemporary" means ‘made by a living artist’)
I primarily paint landscape oil paintings and print limited edition linocut original prints. All my art, so far, is of 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 work in my studio from reference and outside in front of the scene. My plein air paintings often form part of the reference for my studio paintings and prints. I'm always adding to my gallery of contemporary landscape paintings and prints, covering the North of England and the much painted Southern Counties.
Growing up in the countryside has shaped who I am today. So from the single blade of grass and the magical, mysterious thing we call a cloud, to the epic and breathtaking vista, it all still fascinates this kid.
This is why I make British landscape paintings and art prints
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. It's not surprising that 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 2019
Updated: 2 June 2019
I've been - er, still am - recovering from my solo show which closed yesterday…
It was a wonderful tiring two weeks meeting lots of lovely people and explaining how I make my art. It was great to talk to collectors of art who have knowledge; to those who admire, regardless of whether they can identify the medium or how the art has been made; and to those who adore the local landscape (I had lots of useful tips about great views to paint). I learned a great deal about what people like/see in my paintings and about taking on a big exhibition project entirely solo, involving 30+ paintings, umpteen linocuts, art cards, books and a mass of unframed sketches, paintings and linocuts. As you'll gather, it was my first self organised and attended art show.
So now I've been trying to catch-up on all the jobs, such as the garden, that I neglected and generally chill-out a bit. The weather has not been helpful where tidying the garden is concerned, but I've started on other jobs.
In January I mapped-out an artwork production schedule which is pinned to my studio noticeboard. Updating this will be my first job once back in the studio proper. My next priority mission is to approach a couple of galleries and to sort out my website so you can buy art on it. I've also a little matter of cracking giclée sourcing which was the one thing I failed to do in time for my Burton Agnes show :-(.
A joint show in August has been confirmed for the Bank Holiday weekend in York. There's art I want to make for it, so that's on the list for when I get back from Bamburgh. I may get to be part of a group show as well, though space for me has not been confirmed yet. So lots to do, as ever!
The best place to buy my contemporary British landscape art prints and paintings, 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 (2018), though other work took priority.
