About Heather Browne
Since my early 20's I have had a passionate interest in art, often visiting galleries both at home and overseas. I attended an art group in Melbourne started painting first in watercolours then had a gap of many years due to work and family commitments .
I re-commenced painting several years ago as I reduced my work hours and began using acrylics and oils. I have had several teachers since including Kevin Taylor, Stephen Buntock, John Lovett, Colley Whisson and am currently attending the Lucinda Leville Art Studio. From each teacher I have learnt useful and different techniques.
When working in oils I usually first do a quick outline in acrylics and when I am satisfied with this complete the painting by building up layers in oils.
I love the way the oils merge and blend into each other creating endless different colours and values. My choice of subjects for painting is varied as I explore my creative expression and make use of colour, light and shade.
Recently I have begun using watercolours again and I am enjoying rediscovering the beauty of this medium incorporating gouache, crayon and ink to the painting.
