About The Artist

Clare is an award-winning artist who has recently been featured in Artists and Illlustrators magazine as one to watch.

Clare is a Landscape and Seascape artist who uses innovative methods and media to produce unique landscapes and seascapes. She enjoys painting in a semi-abstract style, including monotypes using oils, mixed media and print methods. The British coast and countryside are the inspiration for these original works of art which although semi-abstract, retain a recognisable sense of place.

Clare has developed a unique style of painting in oils, which uses thin layers to allow light to move through the painting. These works are framed behind glass. Clare also paints on an aluminium-based surface which allows the painting to be hung flat to the wall with no frame necessary. There are also paintings on cradled board which can be left unframed, or presented using a floating frame. She also specialises and tutors in Monotypes, a printing technique, to produce beautiful landscapes.

About The Artist

Maria has always loved to paint and feels immensely privileged to be a full-time artist.

The ideas for her work are influenced by colour. She never sees a blue sky – only shades of blue, with hints of pink, apricot, maybe grey! Trees are colours created on the trunks and leaves by sunlight, or times of the day.

Maria comes from the beautiful Channel Islands and has been lucky to have travelled extensively, always absorbing different cultures and scenery. Thirty years ago, she discovered Scotland and her main joy is capturing the beauty of the Highlands and Islands.

Art Groups / Exhibitions

Maria is a member of Artists at Goring, Cookham Arts Club and is a Henley Arts Trail Artist. She exhibits regularly.

Maria is also an Art Tutor and runs regular classes in Maidenhead.

She teaches all the main mediums to adults, regardless of what stage they are at in their learning. Details are available on the website www.artalivemaidenhead.com

About The Artist

I first picked up a sketch pen or a brush in 2016! I have no formal art education, which perhaps explains the lack of a ‘style’. I love to record what I see, trying to capture a sense of place and time, drawing and painting where I live and where I travel to.

Pen and ink, watercolours, acrylics, pastels and mixed media are my go-to mediums. I love to explore and experiment: mediums and subject matter vary, but the thread that weaves through it all is my love of lines, textures and colours. I can relate to Walt Disney’s quote : “I can never stand still … I resent the limitations of my own imagination.”

Thistles Evening Sunlight - Watercolour Painting by Reading Guild of Artists member Richard Cave

Thistles – Evening Sunlight

This painting captures the evening sunlight late in the year in Sicily, shining through the heads of thistles. The low angle of the strong sunlight created powerful contrasts with a limited palette, which reflected the natural vegetation on an uncultivated hillside.

About The Artist

I have been painting watercolours seriously for over 30 years, initially as a facility to illustrate my own work as an Architect which developed into providing that service for others. An interest in the built environment, landscape and setting focussed interest of early paintings on buildings in landscape and townscape, inevitably leading me to a traditional taste in subject matter. Although such subjects from real life are still an inspiration, my work over the last ten years has been orientated toward effects of light and the development of a technique which captures this.

Subject matter is often the depiction of life ‘en plein aire’, instigated by the quality of light and form. To capture the moment, watercolour is the ideal medium and my approach has been traditional, even to the extent of not using white body colour (this is a personal preference, because of the ‘alien’ effect of body colour in a transparent medium rather than a criticism of those who use it). I also try to avoid the use of masque but this is mainly because the essence of ‘plein aire’ is usually a fleeting quality of light which does not allow the time necessary for the use of masking mediums.

Studio paintings are different, but even in in these circumstances I prefer to preserve white surfaces while painting or to lift colour in the process. I also tend to use natural earth colours as much as possible; this is partly because they best suit my normal subject matter but also because, unlike a staining colour, they can be lifted when dry to create ‘whites’. I also tend to use a heavy, rough watercolour paper as my support, which lends itself to techniques for manipulating colour including scratching to produce highlights.

One cannot practise watercolour painting and be unaware of the many great practitioners of the art, both alive and dead. One can admire some, such as John Yardley whilst recognising his approach would be impossible for me, whereas examples from John Blockley, Trevor Chamberlain, Lucy Willis and even Russel Flint and Rowland Hilder have all contributed to my own technique.

Art Groups / Exhibitions

I have occasionally submitted works to national exhibitions and have had works accepted on several occasions by the Royal Society of Marine Artists. This is valuable as a means of getting work seen by a wider audience, but the high percentage of sale taken by the gallery does not make this financially advantageous. I therefore prefer to exhibit where my work can be presented for what I consider to be a fair price, without the need to overprice to meet the gallery commission. I also provide watercolour tuition to local groups and occasional commissions.
