    We have just got in four fabulous new prints from Louise McNaught. 'Hey There, Polar Bear’ is available in four great colours or as a set of four. Louise McNaught’s original pencil drawing really captures the majesty of the Polar bear as well as it’s fragility. The melting polar ice caps have made the Polar bears hostile northern home even more hostile and their numbers are dwindling. Louise has said the drips of florescent colour in this image are a hint at the impact of the melting ice on the majestic and enigmatic polar bear. Each giclee print on Somerset Velvet 330gsm paper then has a silkscreen of the colour added and is part of a signed limited of only 25. If you love this bear Louise has created a whole menagerie of animals check out the rest of her wild creations here. $test =
  • Our top five paintings of snow

    Artists have always been fascinated by snow and the challenges it poses. The impressionists even painted outside in the snow in their attempts to capture the way it changes the light. Here are our top five paintings of snow. Snowstorm at Brighton by Edward Bawden This dynamic print by Edward Bawden was innovative in its use of extensive over-printing of a lighter colour on a darker first print. This technique combined with the use of bold and angular cuts really brings the atmosphere of the snow storm to life. Halstead in The Snow - 1935 by Eric Ravilious Eric Ravilious beautifully captures the falling snow in the Essex town of Halstead. The tracks on the road will soon be covered by the falling snow from the dark brooding sky. Gray Hares (Winter Bunnies) by Kozyndan This is the last in Kozyndan’s 'Seasons of the Bunny' series of prints and is taken from Hiroshige's 'Evening Snow Kanbara'. It features the artists themselves growing old together. The Magpie 1869 by Claude Monet The Magpie was created during the winter of 1868–1869 and is Monet's largest scale snowscape. It is one of this first examples of Monet's use of coloured shadows. It shows a magpie on a fence in a stone wall with a house in the background. The whole landscape is covered in snow. Winter Landscape by Caspar David Friedrich German romantic painter Caspar David Friedrich uses this ominous snow scene to convey a message of the hope for salvation through the Christian faith. The original can be seen in the National Gallery in London. $test =

  • Bowie - An Artist In Every Sense

    The sad passing of music legend David Bowie ignited the radio playlists all day yesterday - and as I sat at my desk, I had fond memories of teenage years, listening to his records in my bedroom (I even had the obligatory poster on my wall)...move over George Michael...I'm not really a Wham kinda gir....
    The sad passing of music legend David Bowie ignited the radio playlists all day yesterday - and as I sat at my desk, I had fond memories of teenage years, listening to his records in my bedroom (I even had the obligatory poster on my wall)...move over George Michael...I'm not really a Wham kinda girl. A massive talent and an icon of our time. An incredible musician, actor, and painter....who also collected art and inspired it too. He was a fan of 20th Century British artists - and chose his art based upon what was important to him at the time, or what typified a certain decade, rather than honing in on the big names! Bowie also attended art school and exhibited some of his own paintings - his style suggested a fondness for Picabia, Surrealism, Marvel Comics and Egon Schiele. He saw painting as therapy - a good way to solve problems and creative obstacles which helped him create musical masterpieces. Such a colourful character also inspired the works of other artists including; Martin Richardson, Clive Sefton, Russell Marshall, Pure Evil and Terry Pastor and many more - and I am are sure he will continue to to inspire for many years to come....gone but never forgotten.     $test =
