In her recent landscapes Penelope works quickly using a wet-on-wet technique rather than building up successive layers of paint.

This approach captures the energy and vitality of her subject matter; the muscular physicality of a gnarled gumtree, the vigour and complexity of nature.

Penelope enjoys the process of discovering her subject as much as the creation of the work itself.
