Watercolour Paintings by Catherine Beale
Catherine is primarily a watercolour painter, interested in pushing the use of watercolour pigments as far as possible. She observes the relaxed landscape forms of the deep coombes and fields around her home on the edge of Bath to experiment with the medium and create what she terms “gravity paintings”.
Mixed Media Paintings by Annette Burkitt
The paintings for Magic Moments are inspired by the hospital and Thomas Hardy’s poem, The Self-Unseeing:
“Childlike, I danced in a dream;
Blessings emblazoned that day;
Everything glowed with a gleam:
Yet we were looking away!”
Annette uses colour and shape to emphasise the joining point of reality and dream world, where magical things can happen amongst ordinary daily activities.
