We were delighted to attend the Critics' Lunch at the Mall Galleries where we offered the Dry Red Press award to one of the many talented NEAC artists exhibiting there.
We chose this beautiful oil painting titled 'Summer Flowers' by Diana Calvert NEAC. We will publish this image as a greeting card which will become part of our Prize Winners' range.
Diana Calvert is a painter of landscapes, still life and flowers. She often has more than one painting on the go at any one time, building each up from washes. Composition is extremely important to her, finding patterns, similarities and contrasts in her subjects, as even conventionally beautiful views do not necessarily translate into an interesting picture. In still life and flower paintings she looks for ‘stars’ and supporting casts, trying to avoid an all over look. She rarely uses photographs except as an aide-memoire if the weather is changeable.
You can see more of Diana's work on the NEAC website.
We are very pleased to have the opportunity to continue to offer this award at the exhibitions of the Royal Societies at the Mall Galleries.
Our ever growing Prize Winners range now consists of twelve beautiful cards and all royalties go straight to the artists.
