John Sinnott,has been painting for a number of years since doing an A (Level)in fine art.His paintings are produced from direct observation.The landscapes you will see on this site are painted en plain air,while the paintings of birds are derived from studies made in the field.His work is all about capturing the spirit and atmosphere of the place or subject he has observed.Its the subtle changes of light and moods in nature that create an emotional response and it this that he tries to convey in his work through marks and gestures of paint.Its this discipline of working firsthand in nature that gives the paintings a remarkable liveliness and feeling of being in nature.
