JACQUELINE DAVIES

We are very grateful to Jacqueline for donating two pieces to the Art Auction.

“Speed Hill Climb” 2019

Acrylic and gouache on canvas
42cm x 60cm x 2cm
Speed Hill Climb is a new painting inspired by her love of cars and painted in the style of 1940s European races and tours. Layers of paint were built up to create the landscape and the fast moving race cars. Created with swift moving brush strokes these machines along with the scene evoke a sense of speed and sport carving through the countryside.

“Wivenhoe”

Acrylic and gouache on canvas
60cm x 60cm x 4cm
This illustrated vision of Wivenhoe celebrates the estuary wildlife, boats and local land marks. It has a sense of playfulness and was created to feel like a bygone souvenir or old postcard of the Wivenhoe. Painted in cool tones of blues and greens.
