Picture of the Month

May 2019
by Carolyn Beale

Coniston Water

Coniston Water
30 x 20cm

As webmaster of the RGA website, one of the best bits of the job is having the first glimpse of what fellow members submit to the Online Art Gallery. Carolyn's is a new gallery page and I was delighted to see the work of a fellow printmaker whose work I admire (and if honest a tad envious of).

It was particularity tricky which one to choose, however the simplicity and clarity of the warm grey tones used, the depth of perspective and ultimately the overall peacefulness of the image is why Coniston Water is May's Picture of the Month. It then struck me how out of last month's grey space has emerged this tranquil image. See Picture of the Month.

Chosen from our Online Art Gallery by Martina Hildebrandt
