Eaton

Doug Eaton is an abstract landscape painter based in the Forest of Dean. His uses vibrant and unusual colours to create these incredible interpreations of the forests and fields near his home.

 

In his own words.

I think I've always been interested in what paint does and hopefully have applied it in as many different ways as my imagination will allow. I have always been aware of a "painterly look" over and above a clinical rendition of anything. I don't mind the odd dribble here or there if only to remind the onlooker that it is paint at the end of the day.

 

Logically, I should therefore be entirely abstract, but instead I lean towards landscape type themes to hang paint on. Although I've done my fair share of traditional looking paintings I am currently trying to be more fundamental in my approach to try and produce a strong result from lines, shapes and colours which combined in some way evoke a landscape, usually based on the Forest of Dean, which I find to be quite a particular landscape.
