Dorothy Tinman

Dorothy Tinman paints as ‘tinman‘

Dorothy's personal website:

Irish landscapes and seascapes
oils in a modern semi-abstract style using thick impasto, often contrasted with areas of transparent glazes.

Dorothy's paintings, mostly in the Rosbeg, Ardara and Loughros area of Donegal, are influenced by dramatic changes in weather from the intense white light of a low winter sun, to the darkest blue of a storm; the remoteness of an isolated farm on desolate bogland that stretches to the distant hills of the far horizon only to meet the threatening sky of yet another storm.

Dark Moody Bog II

The tactile surface of the painting is of great importance , bringing as it does,the elements of the countryside closer and drawing the viewer into the picture in a ‘modernist’ way.

Still life are bold, colourful and expressive and as with landscape, the surface is the very process of its creation.
