Lyn Martin is a predominantly a self taught artist who began her painting in 2019 after a life time of work in other fields. She was raised on the Central Coast of NSW with lots of time spent at the beach, then a short time in Sydney before living in the Blue Mountains then moving to a more rural location in the Central Tablelands.
She has a passion for honest inspiring landscapes and nature painted in oil and describes her style as realistic with close attention to detail, grounded in tradition however with a modern take on light and technique.
Living in the Central Tablelands of NSW Australia gives her the inspiration for her pieces. The area is surrounded with beautiful scenery and National Parks, a cool climate with winter snowfalls, mountains, waterways and birds. A keen walker and a camera always at the ready, there are always a lot of phots to choose from.
Lyn uses reference photos and drawings to make the composition then paints often using the wet in wet method to blend and create. She love the textures of oil paint, it’s malleable nature and depth of colour added to its abundant drying time allowing time to explore and detail the work.
