Portfolios

Fiona Rice

Attending art classes is, for me, more about the process of learning, than the 'finished' paintings. Recently I have been concentrating on Still Life in the hope that the discipline of looking carefully at, and trying to record accurately, what's in front of me will feed into my other work - which so far includes land and seascapes and studies of people. I would welcome any feedback -

Gaynor Fryers

I have recently started painting in oils after originally studying biology followed by a full time career. My children are grown up and I now have the time to try and capture some of the wonderful aspects of nature that catch my attention . I am particularly interested in the shapes and colours of the animals and birds that I see around me.

Sheila Woodruff

I took an A-level in Fine Art as a mature student at CRC when I was working as a solicitor, and a few years later started these oil painting classes. I have found renewed energy post-retirement to develop techniques and experiment with oils, sometimes now combining them with other media. I am interested in atmosphere and texture.

 

Penny Peoples

My pictures are mainly rural landscapes and seascapes, inspired by visits to the Scottish borders, the Cornwall coast and the Fens. I find that oil is a good medium for capturing qualities of light, colour and texture. I also enjoy producing small watercolour and ink pictures of more intimate subjects 

I’ve been fortunate in having an inspirational art tutor for a number of years, and I have been influenced by the work of artists such as Joan Eardley and Edward Hopper.

I studied art as part of my teacher training and subsequently worked with young children over many years, helping them to learn techniques and develop a love of art in all its forms.

Sue Lawley

I'm interested in the effects of light and water, in reflection and in misty and mysterious landscape. Now I see these elements wherever I go and like to paint pictures which I hope communicate what I am observing.

Penny Frith

I have a background in Graphic Design and Filmmaking. I have recently become interested in oil painting; my primary focus now is to capture the light and openness of empty landscapes.

Rikki Morgan-Tamosunas

Rikki works in a range of media. Her paintings tend to feature isolated figures deep in concentration and contemporary settings with a sense of absence. She is interested, above all, in capturing atmosphere and mood through composition and colour. The paintings here follow a period of reflection on C20th expressionism and work by painters such as Edward Hopper and Ben McLaughlin.

Kieron Dunk

I find myself back where I started, more or less. Living in Cambridgeshire where I was born,....and painting. Straight from school I spent a year studying art in Cambridge before embarking on an absorbing career as a designer.

The subject I find most rewarding is our local landscape; especially the beautiful village of Hilton, where I live.

Elizabeth Raby

For many years I designed wild flower greetings cards mostly in pen and ink watercolours so it is a wonderful and liberating challenge to explore using oils as a medium. I have especially enjoyed experimenting with light and colour. 

Willie Wilson

I'm exhibiting a series of small oil paintings with Sicily as a theme. This year I've been trying to introduce more figures into my work which I hope adds an extra dimension to the street scenes that I've worked on.

I am also exhibiting paintings under my own name, Willie Wilson - COS number 218, at The Limes in Hilton (PE28 9NA). This is a more varied series with a looser theme but includes landscapes and buildings.

Deborah Brice

This year my paintings have focused on developing dramatic land and sea scapes. Creating mood and atmosphere is more important to me than precision and correctness. 

Debbie Macklin

In quiet corners and busy streets of Cambridge, I'm drawn to the way light penetrates alleys and archways, illuminating old stone, casting deep shadows and creating a strong sense of place.

Sally Cassels

I have been looking at light on landscape, both where there are buildings and in more remote places. I enjoy painting mountains and am inspired by the work of Swiss painter Conrad John Godley.

Laura Grieve

I love experimenting with colour and find oil paints the best medium for this.

My subject matter is varied, but I am drawn to images with a strong tonal contrast, aiming to capture the quality of light.

Emma Honey

I am inspired by beautiful landscapes and blue seascapes around the world. Although my main mediums are acrylic and watercolour, I like to experiment with different textures  to bring my paintings to life.
