Art Piece From Around Town- Beaney

ruth 2

Ruth McDonald’s prints were recently displayed in the Front Room at the Beaney in Canterbury and stood out by their colour tonality and evocative landscape. The artist seems to have a relationship to nature à la  Impressionism, spending hours on site and noting the changes, often visiting at different times of the day and night.

‘It seems to me, when I see nature, that I see it ready made, completely written — but then, try to do it! All this proves that one must think of nothing but impressions; it is by dint of observation and reflection that one makes discoveries.’ (Claude Monet)
