 Jill Hobbs' paintings have become highly regarded for their skilful and tonally rich application of the pastel medium. The first time observer is often surprised to discover that the medium used is indeed pastel, rather than oil or acrylic.
Sunlight has a strong influence on her work as does the mood and atmosphere of weather or the time of day. She feels that, in order to capture atmosphere it is equally important to capture the temperature and the colour within a scene, particularly in the case of evocative Welsh landscapes.
Although Jill's paintings may often give an overall effect of photo-realism, closer inspection reveals a more impressionistic style.
