 A charming work on paper based on wild flowers in the summer.   The bright colours give a positive and uplifting feel to this work.

Rachael’s works on paper are particularly organic.  Diluted paint is allowed to migrate on a damp surface, sticks are used to daub and scratch,  heavier splatters are dropped, lines are augmented until a balance is reached.  The works are painted on Bockingford 300gsm paper.

Her free and lively use of paint through various techniques,  mean that Rachael’s work is as much about mood as it is of place.  Many of her paintings are based on the area where she lives in Norfolk. They celebrate the joy of light and colour in nature as well as the shape of the landscape. She describes her paintings as a ‘snapshot’ both visually and emotionally of a place.

Beyond the field of gold
