Towering Beech

Exhibition: Artist:

Gary Cook RI SGFA | Ink, Watercolour and Charcoal on Board | 12 x 9 inches

“Beech have shallow roots that suffer in drought conditions. The London Dowd moth in the corner of the watercolour is one of the many species dependent on beech trees. Some of the other wildlife are written into the background of the painting.” 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.
