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

SUBJECT TO CHANGE
I live in Cookham, Berkshire and tend to paint landscapes and animals using Oils and Acrylics.

My work has become looser and more painterly over time, using thicker layers of paint. I am happy to work from good photos and accept commissions. The starting price for my artwork is £180 for smaller works. I also have high-quality Fine Art Giclée Prints of some of the paintings, which cost £40.

I have been painting in oils since I was 15. In 2003 I completed a HND in Fine Art at Reading College of Art and Design (now TVU), which allowed me to explore other mediums such as etching, ceramics, photography and screen printing. I prefer to work in oils and like being able to see the brush strokes in a painting, because I think this makes the painting more powerful and enhances the composition.

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.”

Al Jafar, Paceco, Sicily - Watercolour Painting by Reading Guild of Artists member - Richard Cave

Al Jafar – Paceco

This view across the fertile coastal plain of western Sicily shows a baglio surrounded by vines which represent an oasis in the late Summer heat. The clear day has a heat haze which gives distance to the Egadi Islands on the horizon. This painting is essentially a scetch done ‘en plein aire’ in one sitting and represents a temporal memory of a changing scene, on a hot Mediterranean afternoon.

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.
