Fine Art Landscapes – Anything But Grey


Ruth Gray has worked as a freelance artist for over 10 years a wonderful mixture of travel and collaboration which continues to inspire her.


Ruth has lived in some beautiful areas of outstanding natural beauty including six years in the Alpine region of Victoria Australia and currently resides just south of The Peak District National Park in Derbyshire. Drawing on her experiences of recreation and living in this wonderful picturesque part of the UK, Ruth produce’s a contemporary depiction of the Peak towns and the more industrial market towns of Derbyshire.


She is a landscape painter who has a faultless sense of composition, with an eye for including large areas of glowing colour and an aptitude to communicate a convincing overall pervading almost ethereal atmosphere.  Working around similar geography’s conveying her knowledge of those areas within her paintings and describing that with determination and passion.


Her works are formed by capturing hundreds of images on camera during everyday excursions, and selecting the best and manipulating them digitally, before again manipulating them further on the canvas. A flourish of colour and texture help to define the characteristics and scenic beauty of her chosen subject.  Ruth works mainly in ‘Atelier Interactive Acrylic’ which has both the qualities of watercolour and pastel ,dries beautifully matt to avoid the harsh shine sometimes found in acrylics. The texture is provided by the use of acid free tissue paper, sand or glitter depending on what the intended outcome of the piece is. She paints on a variety of supports including Loxley canvas and Arches watercolour paper and all work is professionally framed in white or off white frames and mounts.


Ruth has six solo shows lined up for next year and details can be found on her website.
