About: A contemporary collection of original paintings by Cambridgeshire based artist Janet Gammans. "I enjoy experimenting with all mediums but watercolour and acrylic are the ones I find most satisfying. Depending on the subject, I find that it would either lend itself more to the delicate touches of watercolour or to the stronger and more vibrant colours of acrylic paint and each would allow me to translate a 'mood' a subject might evoke".
Medium: Original mixed media painting on canvas
Size: 76cm by 76cm
Rental: Available to rent, under Rental Price Category FOUR
Artist Info: Janet began her career working in Advertising and Design in London after leaving college. Janet now works from her studio in South Cambridgeshire as a freelance artist, creating semi-abstract, impressionistic and fine art. Her original paintings are sold from galleries throughout the South of England and internationally via the web. She has become a much recognised artist for her subject matter and her unique creative style of work.
"I have come to realise that it's not what you paint that is important, but how you paint it. So in my interpretation of painting a subject, I try to maintain the essence of what first inspired me to paint it. For me, what is fundamental in paintings are light, subtlety of colour, harmony, depth and drama, while still staying true to the subject. In my finished work, I hope that I have conveyed to the viewer a sense of mood which was present at the time of painting it".
