Lydia Eaton Pastel Paintings

Lydia was lucky enough to have been brought up in a small market town in Buckinghamshire, where she roamed freely in the surrounding countryside and explored the natural world, the wide open spaces and birdsong filling the air as she came across animals and wild flowers growing in the hedgerows.

It's the mystery and beauty of nature and the countryside that inspires her paintings from insects, flowers, rustic doors and cottages to animals

After exploring other mediums Lydia now works predominately with pastel pencils as she finds this medium lends itself to the neat detail and accuracy she wishes to portray in each of subjects she is painting. When possible working from her own photographs as this is another way she likes to capture the magic of nature.
