READING GUILD OF ARTISTS

Picture of the Month

February 2019
by Richard Cave

Drill rig under tow - Valletta
Watercolour

I am drawn to this for many reasons: the strong composition, use of vivid complementary colours and Richard’s effortless mastery of the watercolour medium not least among them. That he is an architect perhaps explains the accomplished depiction of a complicated structure; I particularly like the subtle depiction of shadow-play on the upper section of the rig in contrast with the deep shadows beneath. This is a painting I would never tire of looking at.

Chosen from our Online Art Gallery by Shelagh Casebourne

 

The Reading Guild of Artists (RGA), founded in 1930, is a diverse group of professional and amateur artists in the Berkshire area.
