Creating Reflections ~ Water in the Landscape with Frances Winder

 Join this gently encouraging tutor, Frances, for the day and learn some of the techniques she employs in capturing water on paper.

'My work is based upon the abstracts around me ~ rivers, fells and coast.  I use a free and partly abstracted approach, sometime more abstract, sometimes more representational. Colour mood and atmosphere inspire me to play with texture and paint surfaces. I have recently exhibited 'Waterways' a theme exploring coasts and rivers'.

 As an artist, the fleeting qualities of light and colour excite me. I am trying to grasp the internal qualities, the essential mood and spirit of place. Sometimes I use a straightforward, representational approach, but increasingly I am exploring the abstract. I love to experiment with texture and colour and follow themes and ideas of work, large and small.”

About the Artist  Now living in Kendal, Cumbria, I work from home and in association with Green Door Studio artists. I still do some freelance work but now concentrate primarily on my own work. I am very interested in exploring the printing process, especially collagraphs, and also in ceramics and machine embroidery.

My main fields include painting  – watercolour, gouache and oil pastel, acrylic – they all fascinate me and draw me into the exploration of new approaches and techniques. I love the wilderness areas, walking and gardening. Colour and light are important to me and provide the stimulus for many of my recent paintings. I am also drawn increasingly to more abstract expression of the landscapes and forms which have always attracted me.
