9th - 20th June 2014 Paintings by Sarah Tamosius 'London and her Forest'

Sarah Tamosius writes:

I was born in 1955 and from as far back as I can remember,
I have always drawn and painted.

I grew up and still live in Loughton, Essex. The area is surrounded by Epping Forest, which was given to the people by Queen Victoria, and is now owned by the Corporation of London. From a youngster, I have been fascinated by the beauty of our forest and have tried to capture it’s many changes during each season.

I started painting to sell around eight years ago, exhibiting in my local area to start with, and then venturing further afield, exhibiting in large annual exhibitions in the surrounding countryside. I have had three solo exhibitions so far, but as I do not have a studio and have to work solely from my easel in the family kitchen, things can get a bit hectic at times.

As I am drawn to colour as well as light, I find oil and also acrylic suit my style of painting best. I usually paint straight onto either a prepared MDF board, or a stretched canvas. I’m afraid I’m a rather impatient artist and do not prepare sketches before hand. I just go for an image and try and get down what I feel at the time. Sometimes this works, and sometimes it doesn’t. I’m afraid the casualties end up in the bin and I start again!

I am a landscape and cityscape artist, although I have completed a few still life pieces. I have not tried portraiture.

London as a subject also holds a fascination for me and I can remember at the age of ten, visiting the old Covent Garden Market, the smell of flowers hit me as I ventured into the central flower hall, and I have painted the area many times as the old Covent Garden changed into what it is today. I find the vibrancy of the entire area fascinating.

Painting has really now become a huge part of my life and every day I try and capture the perfect image! There are good painting days and also bad, but I try and learn from the bad days and try and improve. I am very critical and unfortunately, it’s a continual struggle.

The paintings shown here will feature in the exhibition and will be available for sale.
