    April 11th – May 14th

    I have recently become a member of the group called the Arborealists. This  is a group of artists and printmakers linked by their shared theme and passion for trees and nature. I am not  exhibiting in the latest exhibition as   I only became a member this month but the exhibition is well worth a visit. There are lots of really exciting projects planned for this group- so watch this space!

  • ‘Experimental Landscapes’ DVD

    Ann’s dvds are available to order from  the website Gallery Shop .The film  is a companion to the book of the same title but the content is different.  Many techniques are used but the following methods  feature most  prominently: Using watercolour in a loose  style. Using clingfilm in  new ways to create pattern. Creating textures with granulation medium and ink. Using gouache to ‘create order out of chaos ‘and  add atmosphere. Developing your painting in creative ways  through cropping and  other ideas.  Using pencils and crayons into watercolour. A brief look at gesso and its possibilities.   The underlying theme is  to be open minded and experimental in your interpretations of the landscape and nature.  Subjects are largely ‘features of the landscape’ such as different types of atmospheric trees, a country stone wall, and foreground  plants and textures.

    ‘Experimental Landscapes in watercolour’ was Townhouse Film’s best selling dvd in 2015.
