OOOOPSsorry but we have run out of milk.
Maybe whilst you are here you would like to look at a few paintings of several friends of mine. If you like what you see and wish to buy please contact them via their details or through myself.
Ken Forrest is a watercolour painter from Oakham who paints in the classical English watercolour tradition and like many fellow painters finds inspiration in the work of Edward Seago, Rowland Hilder and Trevor Chamberlain. He has shown and sold his work in galleries all over the UK particularly London, Essex,Rutland, and Leics. He also does some watercolour teaching.

Anthony Lay, a self-taught painter from Peterborough, started painting watercolours as a hobby in 1984. After several years trying different mediums, he found a recognisable painting style using acrylics. Taking inspiration from the Americans Winslow Homer, Edward Hopper and the English artists J M W Turner, Edward Seago and Keith Vaughan he tries to paint interesting pictures as painterly as possible, but only rarely succeeds. Unfortunately Tony recently and suddenly passed away, he will be greatly missed.
Christine Davis is the former owner of the Art Shop in Oakham, and since retiring she has the time to pursue her love of painting. She has her own studio in Dean Street from which she produces very colourful images that stimulate the senses and excite the eyes.

Frances Lowe produces the most stunning work with Batik on the finest silk. She works using a traditional batik technique; the inherent characteristic of the medium can be harnessed to create form and texture in a painterly manner, and the combination of silk and dye has a special brilliance of colour and light which underpins landscapes, flower studies and seascapes. She studied Fine Art at Birmingham College of Art Design and then became a teacher. She has exhibited her work widely over the years, in craft shops and galleries throughout the Midlands.
Frances's work can be viewed on her own web site www.franceslowe.co.uk
Chrissie Best paints the most stunning images of colourful flowers in oil and offers individual limited edition prints for sale through her site.www.chrissiebest.com She has just moved to the area and lives now in the beautiful village of Ridlington in Rutland.
This an example of the work produced by Gay Mayes who lives in Twyford. How she manages to paint using this technique I have no idea, but the result is stunning and unique. Gay has kindly agreed to to be a guest artist and will be exhibiting some of her paintings at our annual summer exhibition "VIEW 4" at the Victoria Hall in Oakham from July 25 to August 6.
Also kindly exhibiting at "View 4" will be the well known local artist Roger Lancaster. Roger paints in watercolour and acrylic the most atmospheric and colourful images that gives the viewer a feeling of warmth, wonder and wanting to visit the places depicted. He creates the ambiance and characteristic atmosphere of the scene in a loose but controlled manner.
