Teresa Pemberton : Aeonium Lake

Exhibition: Teresa Pemberton - Echoes of Colour & Light

There is a very good reason Teresa Pemberton is one of our most popular artists and you only have to look at this collection of new work to see why. Her colours are simply beautiful. Soft hues of pastel blues and pinks shimmer alongside glistening turquoise and purples. A splash of neon pink, or zinging orange brings the impressionist landscape into focus, allowing the viewer to capture shapes and colours hitherto unseen.

Teresa is masterful in her approach to applying paint to canvas; her strokes are confident and sure as she draws you into her world of cool lily ponds, sparkling...

Their landscapes and seascapes of the local coastline and countryside are exceptional. John has produced some fantastic new work.
