Devon Landscape Oil Painting by Geoff Sellick at Furzeleigh Mill.

One of a kind landscape-inspired artwork.

‘Wild Swimming’ landscape oil and wax painting

Inspired by views from Dartmoor to the Devon coast.

I have spent most of my life living in South Devon between the moors and coast. My paintings are inspired by the ever-changing light and colour in the surrounding countryside.  The paintings are impressions asking and empowering the viewer to interpret their own imagery and stories behind the paintings. I work in oil with cold wax, other mixed media, and textures directly onto oil paper which I then mount onto wooden blocks.


My paintings are images which, although imagined are abundant in my local Devon countryside.  Applying layers of oil and a cold wax mix I gradually build up layers, scraping away areas to reveal the colours below.  I often like to emphasise and exaggerate colour to give a more uplifting image. Sometimes starting with areas of gilding wax to give an additional depth and focus, adding textures with marks or, local fine sand mixed into the medium.
