Jean Haines is most at home with natural subjects - animals, birds, flowers and plants, though people, landscapes and buildings find their way into her work as well. The word
"atmospheric" could have been coined for her style of painting, which is less representational than impressionistic.

"I want this to read like an adventure, an incredible exploration of a world that holds me completely captive", says Jean in her introduction. It's a world of possibilities and of wonder, introducing both subject matter and techniques.

Jean has one of the loosest styles around and she's not one for minute detail, so the viewer has to be guided to what they're seeing, rather than shown.

It's something that comes with confidence and she is excellent at showing you how she works and how you can achieve the same effects.

By just hinting at forms and shapes, Jean brings an incredible sense of presence and movement to her paintings - those people are too busy going about their daily business to stop and be painted, that kingfisher is going to fly off that branch in a flash any second. It's a tour de force of the properties of colour and water combined and an amazing and
captivating ride all the way.
