Working from her studio overlooking Plymouth Sound, Julie Hammonds has for many years drawn inspiration from the sea and the South Devon countryside, for her oil paintings. Recent works have concentrated on portraiture and large scale canvases.
Portraits, particularly heirloom portraits, are painted mainly to commission. I prefer to paint from life, because it gives me time to get to know my sitter better, and observe the nuances of colour and form of each subject. However, if time does not allow, I also work from photographs.
