One of the current featured paintings in my Spring exhibition is this limited edition, hand embellished canvas by Sherree Valentine-Daines. It is titled Shell Catchers. The print is no longer available from the publishers. It is doubtful that there will be many copies left in retailers as Sherree Valentine-Daines is a hugely popular figurative artist.
This delightful painting shows two small children, nestled amongst the rocks. They are inspecting their catch before depositing them into the little red bucket by their side. The brush marks are fresh, spontaneous and yet carefully expressed. This ensures that the children’s lovely features are correctly defined. My wife and I are great fans of Sherree’s paintings. We first came across her work at the Henley Royal Regatta back in the mid 90’s. This was when we both used to show our original paintings in the Stewards Enclosure during Regatta week. We also have 4 other paintings by Sherree Valentine-Daines on display at our Studio & Gallery in Ponteland.
