Over the last year the artist Andrea Kelland has produced around 40 new paintings, both in watercolour and in oil, for her August exhibition in Tenby’s White Lion Street Gallery.
Her subject matter is water in all its many manifestations and although the location for the inspiration is Pembrokeshire the images are, for the most part, both universal and timeless. The sea is seen in all its moods from the energy of storm force crashing waves via rolling waves to gentle ripples lapping onto beaches in sandy coves where rocks and sky are reflected. Shallow, still water reveals the stones below, whilst the mysterious depths of deeper pools are broken only by reflections. Pool surfaces are disturbed by the landing of a drop of water or a feather from above or by small fish from below. Sometimes the sun glints from the surface too.
