Eva Peel grew up in Sussex and finds this landscape beautiful. She is often drawn to paint the pathways through its chalky hills and loves the challenge of capturing its contours and shifting colours and light. Eva enjoys creating her paintings outside in the landscape to give them greater immediacy and depth, usually working with a palette knife and a combination of oil pastel and acrylic paint on canvas.
