Art Life in the Country

The three artists use a full range of media:  Oil paint, acrylics, watercolours, pastels, inks, marker pens, just about anything that makes a colourful and expressive mark.

Together they do life drawing, plein air landscapes and still life.  A recurrring theme for Monique is African inspired subjects from her homeland in South Africa, along with skyscapes and urban landscapes.  Angela enjoys burlesque, still life especially flowers, fruit and vegetables from her local market and canine and equestrian subjects.   Tina has a longstanding passion for Matthew Bourne’s Swan lake and figures and portraits in general, plus has recently started exploring contemporary abstracts with acrylic pours and usable art.

The work on display will range from postcard size to ’not sure if it will fit through the door’.  Sketchbooks will be on display, along with unframed works in browsers and framed pieces on the walls and easels.  The artists will be working from the studio for the duration of the exhibition and are happy to discuss any aspect of their work.
