'Shades of August ' 20 x 20 inches oil
Much of Naomi's work fits into the quiet, domestic tradition: interiors, still life, nudes. But now and then she moves out in to the wider world for landscapes in the gentle countryside of Norfolk and along the stunning coastline.This summer, for obvious reasons, she has taken even more pleasure than usual in getting out and about.
She paints in oils and all her work stems from direct observation. Form is revealed and defined by the movement and intensity of light that she finds in this peaceful corner of England.
Recently she has begun teaching life drawing and still life painting in her own studio and in a large hall to the north-west of Norwich. Details of which are on the 'About' page.

PAINTING OF THE MONTH
SPECIAL OFFER 25% OFF IN OCTOBER
'Milky rose' (oil on canvas 8 x 8 inches) is the featured painting this month. The white rose is from our garden and I painted it in a cream jug made by the very talented ceramic artist, Grahame Clarke. His work ranged from modern to traditional, inspired by eighteenth century English porcelain and the subjects taken from the Norfolk countryside where he lived.
For a limited time only it is available for a special price of £290, instead of the full price of £425!
Please use the form on the contact page if you are interested. Postage and packing will be an additional cost.
There will be a different painting every month from now on, so please keep watching this space on the homepage.
