Work by Sam Dolman

Sam Dolman [Biography]

Sam Dolman

I have always been a keen artist but it wasn't until after University whilst pursuing a dull career in Accountancy that I realised my true calling. I started painting seriously when I moved to Spain. The sunsets were spectacular which I painted from a villa in the southern mountains. When I returned to England, the Peak District motivated me in a different way. One day I stumbled across some cows whilst photographing the landscape. It was my first real encounter as I leant over a fence. Soon they had all come over to give me a lick and say hello. Cows, with their intelligence and curious nature remain my favourite animals to draw and paint to this day.

Nature provides me with a constant source of inspiration. I often spend considerable time with the animals I paint; they all have unique personalities which I try to capture.

I work very slowly, my paintings are usually worked on over several months to allow drying in between different layers. Nowadays I paint entirely on aluminium. I use synthetic brushes, carefully blending each brushstroke into the next to create a very smooth finish. Recently I have been focusing on charcoal work.
