What's On Next in The Gallery
Rob Upward and Friends
Painting for me, ever since childhood, has been more of an obsession than a hobby. I am largely self-taught, with some Covid-led, on-line classes a recent exception, and I work mainly in acrylics, loving the vibrancy of the medium. For most of my life I have painted landscapes, but figures have begun to appear, unannounced, in my work, adding a new dimension and challenge.
I am delighted that some modest but talented friends of mine have been persuaded to leave the privacy of their home studios to join me in this exhibition.
I am Sandra and I live in Saltdean, a place I love. I enjoy painting in oil, acrylics and water colours, creating seascapes, and colourful memories
After retiring some ten years ago I decided to take up painting. I am self taught and work in acrylic and oil on both canvas and paper. I am primarily influenced by the impressionists and Vincent Van Gogh. Since retiring I've moved to Brighton, East Sussex with my family and love to paint the landscape around Brighton. I’m particularly inspired by the atmosphere of the city streets, the north lanes, the people, the markets, the cafes and the vibrant colours.
