Liz Dagg

My love of colour and texture is evident in my paintings and I endeavour to capture a personal feeling, especially the energy and movement of the place. I am a keen gardener and walker which is all part of my creative process.
I attended a weekend course in clay modelling at Edinburgh Sculpture Workshops, which was cancelled during Covid. I do love working with clay but I had not managed to do anything for quite a while. I believe that it is good sometimes to do something creative that is different to my main work. It all contributes to what you create in one way or another. It is also lovely to be with a group of likeminded people. I am continuing to create a new body of work incorporating seascape/landscape paintings in semi-abstract and abstract form. These will be displayed in both the house and the studio during Spring Fling.

About My Practice

I am a painter/mixed-media artist who takes inspiration from spending time at a location, gathering important ideas. Colour and texture are noted along with different mark-making sketches. Sometimes these are completed at the scene, – usually in gouache – but more often they are finished in the studio. I am particularly drawn to seasonal changes, especially heavy seas. I really enjoy experimenting with different media, colours, and textures.

Tools & Materials

I often use a selection of tools: brushes, cloths, palette knives and scrapers, depending on the medium I am using, to get a desired finish. I sometimes add collage, inks, acrylics or oil paint for semi-abstract mixed-media pieces. Sketchbooks are very important to me for stimulation and motivation as part of the creative process including life drawing images.
