Luba's Changing Colours  is a new painting to reflect the rich changes of colour in the autumn season, in foliage, land and sky. Like most of her abstract landscapes, it was inspired by local South Cotswold scenery.


The composition has her customary high horizon, single sky-high light source and distant vanishing point. The colours convey the warm autumn sunshine falling across leafy, rust-coloured hillsides and meadows.


As with others of Luba's larger works, it would look fabulous on a plain or pale expanse of wall in a main reception room or hallway.


    Luba is a contemporary landscape artist living in Gloucestershire.

    Her abstract paintings explore an emotional representation of nature in all of its states and behaviours, from gentle and calm to brutal and violent.


    In her exuberant, colour-drenched depictions, Nature comes to life and unleashes its full, elemental force, from shimmering sunshine to turbulent storm, dawn to dusk.

    With acrylic, oil and charcoal as her main media, she plays with pure colours, light effects and form, intensifying them, pushing them to extremes. Palette knife marks create texture and numerous layers of paint overlap to add depth.


    Luba's approach combines painting from memory, sketches, photographs and, of course, on location work. Her technique is energetic and intuitive. There's often a spontaneous reaction - or an impression of spontaneity.


    It's about the way a subject or scene makes both the artist and the viewer feel: how we respond to shape and colour, to dynamic pattern and brush marks.


    Her artworks have appeared in exhibitions in Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, Devon and Cornwall. She has a degree in Art History.
