PICTURE OF THE WEEK
The lazy hazy days of high summer are captured in this coastal scene, with gulls soaring on the breeze above the sand dunes.
The watercolour was painted by Irene Mills, whose paintings have been popular purchases at Polkadot Pictures' events. Two previous paintings by the same artist which have been sold by Polkadot Pictures & Framing include the barn owl and the hare shown below.
This original watercolour painting in shades of grey is named "Tranquillity".
Polkadot Pictures & Framing highlighted the colours in the painting with an inner mount of grey combined with a white outer mount. A simple woodgrain frame in dark grey completes the tranquil effect.
Size: approx 44 x 35cm (17" x 14")
Artist : Maureen Crofts
This framed original watercolour painting is approximately 39 x 30cm (15” x 11.5”) and is for sale at Collingham Memorial Hall on Saturday 17 June.
BIRD-WATCHERS! Explore the location of this picture with the RSPB
Visitors to Polkadot's gallery at Decoporium, Thorp Arch Retail Park, may have seen this peaceful rural scene and wondered where it was. In fact it's a thriving nature reserve in Cambridgeshire, teeming with wildlife and famous for its nightingales and cormorants, as well as migrant warblers, hobbies and even an osprey.
The Leeds branch of the RSPB has organised a coach trip to the nature reserve on 29th April, and non-members of the RSPB are welcome to join the event. For details, see the RSPB web site - booking is essential and places are limited so contact them now to book your place!
Paxton Pits Nature Reserve - original watercolour by artist Helen Guy. Size approx 49 x 39cm (19" x 15"), price £60
