The Old School Muker welcomes, the watercolours of Rachel McNaughton

New for 2019 The Old School Muker is pleased to showcase the work of Rachel McNaughton. 

In Rachel’s words … “Painting is a way into an inner world, a secret garden of colour and shape, and what stared as a hobby become an essential part of life. I work from life, or from my own photographs but both are merely a starting point and many paintings are created from a combination of various images. Watercolour presents the artist with many unexpected “ accidents” and often shapes that appear in initial washes become suggested flowers and so a painting often chooses its own path to completion.”

A regular visitor to Upper Swaledale, Rachel’s vibrant watercolours capture the brighter, more colourful side of Dale, when the sun shines and the meadows are in bloom.
