 Julie Dunster is passionate about painting from life, on location, in all weathers. She works in oils, hoping to capture the essence of a moment in the landscape, an emotion in a portrait, a narrative in a still life. Occasionally she works in her mid Devon studio, often using studies made en plein air to inform her painting, or painting commissions,

 like this 2.2m long oil painting of a beautiful garden, painted, as requested, as if everything was out in bloom all at once.
