Impression: Lilacs by Lynda Sellar
Lynda is interested primarily in painting watercolour sea and landscapes en plein air. Years ago on a walking holiday in Italy, she observed a group of “Sunday painters” and their Australian instructor. Lynda’s question to that teacher was whether drawing and painting could be learned or whether it sprang from innate talent. He said it could be learned. When Lynda retired to Port Hope she pursued the idea. Excellent instruction from local artists and the gentle beauty of the hills of Northumberland continue to inspire her to learn, explore and dream. Travel is an opportunity to make postcards of places she loves in other parts of the world. But since childhood her heart lies in the Canadian landscape from Ontario to Vancouver Island and the Maritimes.
