Sorrel’s passion in painting is to capture the effects of light and shadows. Textures and effects of oil paint are a delight to her, created using palette knives. They leave a history of the life of the painting’s construction behind them, so one feels more clearly the workings and thoughts of the artist – especially viewing the work close-up -then when stepping away, the painting shows its representational intention. Sorrel explores effects of colour to convey emotions. She also creates in pastels - the saturation of colours show many interchangeable qualities with oil paints for her. www.sorrelwillsart.com
