I’ve been looking at Sandra Pratt’s paintings ever since I stumbled on one of her landscapes on Pinterest. I like the simplicity and spaciousness of her work.

The swaths of mostly monochromatic colour that she lays down with her palette knife really capture a sense of place and time.

And evoke a mood about what she’s painting. This isn’t easy to do – it certainly doesn’t happen often in my work. I’m still too focused on recording what I see rather than capturing the essence or feeling of what I’m looking at. Pratt’s work is inspiring!
