Tina Spratt – A sense of mystery

“I have always been fascinated by the skill and draughtsmanship involved in painting. In my own work a great emphasis is placed on the execution, I tend to paint in many layers to build up the glow of light and depth I require to create the atmosphere and mood.

I also greatly admire Vermeer for the atmospheric and domestic settings he portrays with beautiful lighting, not forgetting the amazing fabrics and figures rendered by Velázquez…”
