The artists we had gone to look at in Lechlade were Vedanti Ramlall-Moodley, Sharon Ellis and Brian Britton; they made us very welcome and showed us their work; Vedanti kindly agreed to take photographs, so the ones below are hers:
He had some gorgeous prints from his lino cuts, he uses paper from the Two Rivers papermill in Watchet www.tworiverspaper.co.uk/
From Lechlade we visited Beverley Greig's light filled studio back in Swindon,
And below is her latest work:
Visiting Vanetta's to appreciate her work is only part of the experience, but let's start there. The photograph above shows Jackie and Robert in Vanetta's studio, with windows on two sides, the light is glorious. There are diaries and sketch books to look at and this partially completed portrait:
Another painting I really liked was this one of an apple:
From Vanetta's, our last call, on artists open on the second weekend, was at Toni and Gordon Dickinson's studios. As always, we had a warm welcome and had art in the garden on the fence, new twig sculpture in the garden and masses of work in the house.
What a great introduction to their space.
