Having recently relocated to Barrie, I am establishing my business Wintle Studios here. What you will find at my booth are original paintings and drawings, archival quality reproductions in limited edition Giclées, and open editions. If you have an interest in taking art classes with me, I would love to talk to you about it.
My interest in landscapes goes back to my teens. Even then I spent many hours riveted to a perch of some sort while I enjoyed the challenge of capturing a view that caught my eye. Now I try to pick up the unique energies, some healing, some agitating. of the places I connect with. Sometimes this has to do with my attraction to rocks, water, sky, space, colour and live stories exposed in a study of a fleeting moment. I prefer to be on site if possible. painting Plein Air (Open Air) to get the literal feel of what has attracted me to this place. Hopefully this is felt by the viewer who can experience this through my work.
Collectors interested in commissions –I am still accepting a limited number of commissions in various mediums but I prefer watercolour or acrylic. Having worked for over 35 years capturing the personalities of people, domestic animals, wildlife and landscape, there is opportunity for me to combine these experiences and to integrate them into whatever is needed for the painting to work.
