Tina Reed – Oil Painting Artist

Tina paints in oils and has over 30 years experience as an artist, covering various disciplines. She draws inspiration from the beautiful Killarney National Park and the Mountains and Lakes of Kerry and West Cork near her home in the Clydagh Valley just outside Killarney, Co Kerry in Ireland.

Tina uses an ‘impasto’ technique in her paintings, where paint is layered and textured to build up a tactile three-dimensional surface, working in an Impressionist style. She uses the palette knife to create spontaneous effects bringing movement and life to her work. Strong colours and contrast generate energy and vigour that is a common theme in all her paintings from landscapes to florals, equestrian and sporting paintings.

Two-day oil painting courses are held during school breaks in KDYS Killarney. During classes, we do a painting step-by-step together. We work from photographs, and from a finished painting that I have prepared in advance. I demonstrate each stage, explaining and analysing composition, how to mix colours, and how to create different effects using different techniques. Suitable for age 7 and up, all materials supplied.
