More eyecatching work from Luba.


Silent Watch would make the perfect central focus drama for a living room or hallway wall. Especially where it can be viewed from a distance or as you enter the room.

This vibrant abstract creation is inspired by a frosty Gloucestershire rural evening, with mist hanging in the air.


Energy and calm interplay in her contrasting colour choices and compositions, cut across by the slash of teal and deep blue on the horizon. 


"The colours were inspired by winter sunsets while walking in the Gloucestershire countryside," Luba explains. "It's amazing what an array of colours nature creates to paint these times of day, depending on the season and the climate."


Breathtakingly beautiful. 


    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.
