About The Artist

I went to sea at 15 with the Royal Navy and came ashore again 12 years later having experienced typhoons in the Pacific, hurricanes in the Atlantic, the deep freeze of the Arctic and monsoons of the tropics; but such beauty everywhere.

Then after 3 years in commerce which was illuminating but boring, I became a Financial Adviser for the next 47 years, which on balance I found wonderfully fulfilling.

Even after all that time, salt water still flows through my veins but I love the dry land and all its surprises too.

I have had no formal training but had been painting in water colour on and off for about twenty years. After trying acrylics in about 2015 the bug bit: I had to become a painter!

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.

About The Artist

Chris has been painting since his school days and after a career in design and marketing, now paints full time from his studio in South Devon.
Most of his paintings are of the countryside and coastline of southern England where he tries to capture the beauty and sometimes the savagery of the changing seasons.

He works mainly in oils and tends to use the palette knife in preference to the brush, as he likes the depth and richness of colour this offers.
His work is in private collections in both the US and Europe.

Fine Art Prints

All paintings are reproduced on ‘Hahnemule Fine Art Albrecht Durer’ paper,120gsm. The matt inkjet coating used on the prints meets the highest industry standards regarding density, colour graduation and image sharpness whilst retaining the special touch and feel of art papers. It is the first choice for the reproduction of oil and acrylic originals and you will be delighted with the quality.

About The Artist

Melanie’s work is based on light and colour. She loves to capture the fleeting effects of light on her subjects, especially where it sparkles on water. In order to do this she paints on location all year around. As well as painting views of the River Thames, other favourite locations include the Surrey Downs, the River Wey and the Blackwater Estuary in North Essex. Working mainly in oils, she is available for commissioned work, but specializes in landscapes and coastal views of locations personal to her clients rather than portrait work. Melanie is an active member of Guildford Art Society, Caterham Art Group and the SAA (Society for All Artists).

As a tutor, Melanie is a regular visitor to Art Groups around the South East giving demonstrations, running workshops and hosting painting holidays for individuals. She has written four art instruction books for Collins and more recently launched her own range of artist oils, gouache and brushes all of which are available via her website: www.melaniecambridge.com
