from Nancy Bell Scott 210622

This awe-inspiring, wonderful work from Nancy arrived on the summer solstice, the perfect celebration! I was struck by the elongated portrait orientation, vertical lines and general up-thrust of energy in these pieces. Being of inquisitive nature I looked at all the other work I've received from Nancy, and the majority have the same characteristics, though I've only just now noticed!…See More

"Thank you, Carien. It's ink rather than watercolour, and just one colour for the washes and the line work. "
