Paula Gabb is inspired by the beauty of the British countryside for her landscapes – occasionally populated by historic towns and cityscapes, Paula spends her time focusing on her local area with an interest in the history, local landscapes and landmarks around Birmingham and the outlying regions.
Paula has also discovered the enjoyment of painting in abstract art as a form expressing the cityscape, this does not attempt to represent an accurate depiction of a visual reality but instead use shapes, colours, forms and gestural marks to achieve its effect
Paula is inspired by the impressionism painters, how the artist captured the light of their images without detail but with bold colours, Paula has been inspired by some of the greatest impressionist artists were Edouard Manet, Claude Monet Alfred Sisley, Alfred being her most inspiration from his composition of his landscapes the sense you can walk into the landscape.
Paula Gabb preferred medium is oils on canvas painting with the palette knife she loves the rich layered texture that lends some three-dimensional aspects to the landscapes, cityscapes and the urban environments and reflecting changes in lighting tone. Painting has allowed me to express myself in ways that would otherwise not have been possible due to suffering from Dyslexic / Verbal Dyspraxia.
