Art in many forms.

This week I have been to Sculpture in the Sanctuary in Southwell.

Once again there were many lovely exhibits.

It is just amazing what an artist can do from recycled bits of metal.

Renato is first class at this. The animals seem to have a character of their own.

Pete Roger’s bridge is beautiful.

Sue Dare’s Sitooterie  would look lovely in a garden.

Vermeer & Music was very different.

The Dutch Masters show us examples of dedication to precision, detail, colour and purity in art.

Designers can learn from them.

 

Vermeer’s The Guitar Player  contrasts strong colour with soft skin tones.

Here the space around the figure is an important as the image itself.

We would do well to remember that ” Less is more”.

Summer is a time to go out and explore art!
