Child’s Pose is an original painting by Rosie Copeland. ‘This painting was completed in the studio during lockdown due to Covid 19. I normally work directly from a model or from sketches made from observation but this was not possible so I based this work on a well-know painting by Euan Uglow – called the Wave – reinterpreting it as Childs pose – one of the most relaxing poses in yoga – I love the emphasis on the curve of the body and the fact that that this yoga position is a signal to reset, feel safe and rest – perfect for these uncertain times’
Rosie grew up in the Cotswolds and gained an M.A in Art History at Edinburgh University before pursuing a career in the public relations industry. Whilst raising a young family, she continued her studies in life drawing and painting at Putney School of Art and Design and Heatherley School of Fine Art in Chelsea. Rosie now lives, and paints from her studio, in London. In the last few years she has exhibited at numerous exhibitions in London and the home counties including The Affordable Art Fair in Battersea, The New English Art Club and The Royal Society of Oil Painters Annual Exhibitions at the Mall Galleries and Nadia Waterfield Fine Art, Andover. In 2019, she was elected a member of Chelsea Art Society. Rosie enjoys painting directly from observation either outside ‘en plein air’ immersed in the landscape or back in the studio working on a still life or the figure. She has developed a painterly, expressive style which she uses to capture the essence of a subject and explore her love of form, colour and light. Rosie works mainly in oils but enjoys experimenting with a variety of techniques in acrylic, watercolour, gouache, pastel and charcoal.
