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.
- Patchings Art Festival – 2017
Oxton Road, Calverton, Nottingham, NG14 6NU
This year the Patching organisers have allocated a special mini marquee for the artists demonstrating in the larger St Cuthbert’s Paper Mill tent. After my hour long demonstrations on Saunders Waterford paper I will be able to chat and answer questions at leisure to visitors on Thursday and Friday afternoon in the mini marquee before moving to the guest artist marquee on the Saturday. Signed books, dvds, prints, greeting cards and original paintings will all be available to purchase ( cash or cheques preferred)… or just come along and see work in progress or have a chat!

- ‘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.
