Painting of the Month (35) December 2012: Alex Snellgrove

Persian Girl by Alex Snellgrove
On my recent visit to Australia I was lucky enough to meet up with esoteric fellow-Blogger Stephen Simmonds (click here to visit his Blog). He and his wife Rosalie took Leah and I to a gallery in Clovelly, a suburb of Sydney near Bondi Beach, where their friend, local artist Alex Snellgrove, was showing her latest work.
As you can see she has a wonderful way of painting water. The series of paintings, of which the above is one, displays her great ability to convey the luminosity and movement of water. The effect of light and the translucence it gives the water is delightful. We met the charming artist and bought some cards with prints of her work; I would have liked to have purchased a painting too but they were (justifiably) out of my price range!
