Pastelist captures ocean moods
Lyn Woolridge has always dabbled in art, but it wasn’t until she retired, that she has been able to devote more time to painting. Since the late 1990’s Lyn has focused on pastel, and it is those paintings that she is bringing to Moruya Library for an upcoming exhibition.
Lyn has featured twice in the Australian Artist Magazine. She is best known for her pastel paintings of seascapes and rivers. She said, “I continue to try to capture the changing moods of the sea and the play of light on the water and the wet sand.”
Lyn employs two different techniques to her approach to pastel painting that help to create more depth in the subject; one is underpainting with the complimentary colour, and the other is to under paint with watercolour first.
Lyn’s award winning paintings hang in many homes and collections in Australia, Canada, USA, United Kingdom, Hong Kong and China.
Lyn is a member of both CABBI and the South Coast Pastel Society and regularly exhibits locally and regionally.
The public are invited to meet Lyn at Moruya Library at 5.00pm on Tuesday 14 March where she will discuss her exhibition and the various techniques she uses. Lyn’s exhibition will remain on display for the public from 6 – 24 March.
