Adele Riley | 5th September – 6th October
As an artist living in Gloucestershire, I’m surrounded by some of the most natural and inspiring surroundings in the UK, well-place to benefit from a huge variety of light, texture, and drama – perfect for what I do. I usually begin by sensing the subject, sometimes using a photo or a sketch to extract weather, light, horizons and shapes to commit the scene to canvas with a variety f media and paint.
When it comes to subject, I’m as happy looking for an expansive coastline, packed woodland or open fields every bit as much as getting in close to a feeding blackbird, a butterfly settling, or flowers budding. The most important ingredient is finding the emotion of the scene offered by the light and atmosphere of the moment.
