JUNE – Water Colours by Rachel McNaughton
We are always delighted to exhibit the watercolours of Leeds based artist Rachel McNaughton. Rachel’s biography tells us more about her inspiration:
“Flowers are the centre of my focus and their myriad colours, combined with their delicacy and fleeting nature, are a constant source of inspiration.
I work from life, or from my own photographs but both are merely a starting point and many paintings are created from a combination of various images.
Watercolour presents the artist with many unexpected “ accidents” and often shapes that appear in initial washes become suggested flowers and so a painting often chooses its own path to completion.
Over time my work has moved away from botanical accuracy into a more expressive style and become looser with runs and dribbles becoming part of the process of creating the image.”
