This is an original painting by Charmaine Chaudry. Inspired by childhood summer trips to the lake district, 'Crossing the Brook' depicts a dream-like scene, based on a mixture of photographs and memories. Charmaine creates an atmosphere of heat and otherworldliness. Playful colours of pinks, lilacs, and oranges add to its nostalgic quality. The painting's details are not defined but loose and impressionistic, each brushstroke is clear and light, allowing the tangerine orange under color to shine through.

Charmaine Chaudry artist with Wychwood Art. Charmaine’s artwork largely stems from fascination with identity and “the exotic”. Charmaine’s mixed-race English and Pakistani identity is inherent to her work as she feels a pull towards both classically English nostalgic scenes, as well as towards her paternal home of Pakistan, a place that is contrastingly warm and romantic but distant to her daily life. Charmaine plays with these themes of nostalgia, the exotic, and with her own relationship to idealised landscapes to create idealised dream-like scenes, evidenced by her vibrant colour palettes and impressionist bold brushstrokes. Her work fundamentally portrays the joy she finds in the outdoors. She depicts both nostalgic memories of spending endless days exploring her childhood garden, as well as a pull towards warm “exotic” places of her ancestors and her travels. Charmaine wants her audience to find a relatability and comfort in her artwork, whether that is rose-tinted memories, or idealised dreams.
