Spring Arboretum is an original painting in acrylic on canvas board by Rosemary Farrer. Rosemary uses landscapes as a starting point to abstract what she has observed and capture the feeling of a place, in this case a magical group of flowering trees and shrubs. My process starts outside drawing, this is a wonderful and contemplative time surrounded by the sounds and scents of nature, absorbing information on so many levels. In the studio I will start with transparent washes of colour before choosing elements from the drawings and building up a stylised image which captures the feel of the place. In this case the extraordinary exuberance of new spring growth.

Rosemary Farrer, artists and printmaker sells with us online and in our art gallery in Stow-on-the-Wold. Rosemary paints in oils and also makes original prints. The prints are in no way copies of the paintings, they are conceived of, and made, as a response to the special and wonderful effects that can be achieved only through the various techniques of printmaking, whether it be the graphic, dynamic marks of a linocut, or the subtle tones and textures achievable in aquatint and etching. Design, composition and the use of colour are what excite her. She spends a lot of time drawing and painting outside, back in the studio, she will distil these ideas into strong graphic woodcuts, and linos or subtly textured etchings. Recent monotypes draw together the threads of her different media, with their graphic shapes and rich painterly colours. She studied fine art at Camberwell School of Art and The Ruskin School of Drawing, and learned printmaking at Morley College [London]. She has exhibited prints and paintings at many galleries both in Britain and Europe, as well as, several times, at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition.
