Robin Hall

Robin’s exhibition features work mostly created between June and October 2016. Along with new Lincolnshire scenes painted in watercolour, Robin will also be displaying images painted using acrylic, coloured pencil, and water soluble pencils, these feature a range of subjects inspired by nature and the landscape.

“The Lincolnshire landscapes I have painted are all in the Sleaford area and are inspired by agriculture.  When I am not working with watercolour I like to expand my artistic repertoire and explore using various media. I am displaying these ideas along with my landscapes so that visitors can see my full range of ideas and work.”

Robin will be at Carre Gallery on Saturday 5th and 12th November.

Anita Mortimer

Anita Mortimer is an artist using mostly pencil. She also uses pastels, pen and ink and very occasionally acrylic or oil paints.  Pencil is an unforgiving medium but one that Anita feels comfortable with. It enables her to show the sweep of feathers or the curl of fur with breathtaking accuracy.  Her subjects are mostly animals but she also does portraits, landscapes and sometimes buildings.  In this current exhibition she focuses mainly on pets but not exclusively.

Anita grew up in Croydon, Surrey and now lives in Lincolnshire.  Her pictures have sold internationally and she has taken commissions for portraits, wildlife and pet portraits.  Her current project is to open a small gallery in Horncastle.

Snow Leopard by John Palmer

John has been drawing and painting for as long as he can remember and is an entirely self-taught artist working in the realistic style.  The exhibition has over fifty originals and many more prints available in a range of sizes and subjects including portraits, dancers, landscapes, animals, birds, still life, figures, botanical studies and pet and animal portraits.

Flower_400“Having experimented with a range of art media I came to pastels around ten years ago and now work exclusively in pastels and pastel pencils using a range of manufactures as each brand has its own particular properties; some soft and easily blendable, some harder and more suited to detailed work.

Although I enjoy and appreciate most art forms, my earliest influences came from the Dutch masters and their ilk whose work still inspires me today. Art and culture have always been strong interests for me along with the natural world which is a passion also. My aim is to represent the subjects I paint in a realistic and recognisable way whilst using artistic licence to apply lots of colour, light and shade for dramatic effect and added interest.”
