Oak in the Water Meadows

Exhibition: Artist:

Gary Cook RI SGFA | Ink, Watercolour and Charcoal on Board | 27 x 19 inches

“Streams creating mist meander through the water meadows on an early morning walk as the sun burnt off the dampness revealing this lovely oak standing among the willows. There are 2,300 different species of bats to mammals, lichen to fungi dependent in some way on oak. Silhouettes and some of these species are hidden and written into the background of the watercolour.” Gary

Gary is an environmental painter who explores our complicated relationship with and often detrimental impact on nature. The combination of naturalistic painting and narrative script that characterise his watercolours are a direct result of his background in the newspaper industry where he was an associate editor and the senior artist for The Sunday Times for 26 years, winning many international awards for his illustrations.
