Oil on canvas seascapes, reflecting Sophie’s artistic infatuation with sea, sky and light.
Personal impressions in oil, some abstract others depicting the impression of shifting light and colour.
West Sussex-based landscape artist, Sophie Marchant, moved to South Africa at the age of 5, returning to the UK after university. These formative years, with a father who had taken to painting, inspired a lifelong passion for art and nature, which was further nourished by travelling the world as a travel writer. Her large oil landscapes and seascapes capture dawn and dusk and the play of light on clouds, water and the radiance of skies. She is currently exhibiting a selection of oil paintings and Forgotten Beauties insects at Bingham Riverside in Richmond upon Thames until mid-March 2022.
