Harbour View By Sabrina Roscino
Size: H 25cm x W 25cm x D 2.5cm
Born in 1980 on the Isle of Wight, Sabrina now lives in Cowes, the home of the famous Regatta. She confesses to spending many hours relaxing and sketching her ideas for new artwork on the Marine Esplanade.
Following a recent holiday to Devon she was inspired to create a series of naive seascapes that reflected the character of the place. Colour was her main focus, rows of cottages squeezed onto banks of green foliage, all set along the water's edge.
She has recently started working with charcoal, both for preliminary sketching and while painting. She wanted her elephant paintings to remind her of old photographs which have been tucked away for years. To achieve this effect she combined acrylic paint, acrylic inks, pastel and charcoal. She has also been working with soft pastels this year, using the medium on top of acrylic paint. Thi snot only achieves some amazing colours but also creates interesting textures.
