Wildflowers Painting by Arts Society Reigate Artist Gary Meeke

Wildflowers

In painting, Impasto (Italian for dough) describes highly textured areas of the surface of a painting which are heavily built up with paint layers. Palette knife marks are clearly in evidence. I used very bold and heavy abstract paint so each colour really lifts off the canvas giving a 3D effect that is lovely to touch as well as to view.

Why not add floral artwork to your home or office. It’s also the perfect gift for your loved ones, relatives, and friends. I never paint the same painting twice, so you will have a one-of-a-kind original painting.

About The Artist

A little about me and how and why I paint.

When I see a canvas, I never get artist's block, I see my next great adventure starting. I'm on a journey without a plan that is constantly evolving. Each brush or palette knife stroke turns into something wonderful that eventually turns into a painting. That Is true art to me, rather than planning every step of the way, but who am I to say?

I am new to painting compared to many other artists and totally self-taught. I never studied at art school and have no art qualifications, but does that make my art unworthy? Can I even call myself an artist? I guess we all have to start somewhere but at least I'm honest enough to admit it and still place great love and passion into every painting I paint.

I have used every painting medium available but found my true love in acrylics. I started painting all sorts of things including trees, waterfalls, fields, sunsets etc. until my wife asked me to paint her a flower painting.
"Paint flowers!" I said, but I gave it a go, and surprisingly my wife was pleased. Since then, I have developed a unique way of painting flowers which I absolutely love. I mix my own heavy-bodied abstract paint and paint Impasto-style impressionist flowers.

After selling my art at various fairs and shows around the UK, I have decided it's now time to build a website to display it in a much easier fashion. I truly hope my paintings bring you as much pleasure as they did for me painting them.

I will post free within the UK. If you live outside the UK and wish to purchase my art, please contact me and I will be happy to find out shipping costs for you.

Please visit my website to view all of my artworks.

About The Artist

The roots of my creativity are in Africa. The people, the vegetation and multifaceted landscapes of Zimbabwe were to me vividly bright and beautiful.

I moved to the UK in 2003, with one year away (2003-2004), accepting a visiting student opportunity in Jerusalem, Israel. I was based in Wimbledon up until 2009 and then moved to Surrey and now live in Kent. I have relished the cultural richness that is here and the beauty of the English countryside.

I look back at my mentors with gratitude. Beginning at primary boarding school, I remember with thanks the artist and teacher, Jean Peterson, who started an art club. My very first exhibition entry was done through her. From then on I thought of myself as an artist.

Estelle Byrne was my inspiring and gifted art teacher at secondary school. I notice on the Queen Elizabeth School Facebook page, she is often mentioned with affection. Her classes were the highlight of my week.

I mostly work in acrylic and watercolour. When I work from nature I prefer close up views, making the play of light the main ingredient. I am aware that I am drawing inspiration from my own story behind the subject, the ongoing script of everything observed.

I love the human form and face. I look for subtle expressions that reveal personality, the story behind the eyes.

Awards / Exhibitions / Career

I studied at the School of Art at the Bulawayo Technical College. Under Adele Walters I discovered and developed my strength in life drawing and received the college’s Fine Art Award (1969). That same year, a class outing to the park to paint outdoors initiated my love for watercolours.

I went on to a long career in Harare, mostly within the textile industry. I took on painting commissions, sold my work through commissions, solo and joint exhibitions and in small local galleries. It’s a lovely thought that my work is all over the world in people’s homes.

In Zimbabwe I worked only in watercolour, and my subjects were predominately floral and landscape (see Bush Sunrise). Here in the UK, I have taken on private commissions and I have sold work at the Corner Gallery, Carlshalton (see Hydrangea Profusion) and through the studio of Jane Silk, the ceramicist (see Ornamental Orange Tree and Higginson Park).

I am exhibiting at Sixteen Gallery, Cheltenham in March 2022.

I’ve had exciting experiences as a mature student. I lived in Sweden for four years to study (BA European History) and during that time took 3 courses in Western Humanities under Dr. Torbjorn Aaronson, PhD Political Science, Uppsala (2002). As a visiting student for one year, I studied Jewish Art in Late Antiquity at the Hebrew University, Rothberg School, under Professor Lee I. Levine (2003-2004). I now live in Kent.

About The Artist

I am a landscape artist based in New Haw, Weybridge, Surrey.

I have always had a passion for painting and gained a Diploma in Art at a London University College of Education.

For many years, I have divided my time between my art, my teaching and our family publishing business, Guinea Pig Education, which sells educational material around the world.

Sally Anne Wake Jones - New Haw, Weybridge Artist Landscape Painting En Plein Air

My recent acrylic paintings tell stories inspired by my dog walks. I love to connect with nature. I immerse myself in the fabric of a place - the changing seasons, the cloud formations, the cycle of life and decay - keeping a visual notebook. I set out to capture these impressions, painting large spontaneous statements.

Where possible, I like to work on canvases, en plein air and with my husband, Peter, we have created a unique collection of paintings, portraying the historic parkland of Windsor Great Park, in varying moods throughout the seasons.

We frequently visit the South of France and the intense light of that region has influenced my bold use of colour and the scintillating light effects seen in my work.
