Wish You Were Here – By Pamela Reid
A life-long passion for roaming with her camera and sketchpad, an en plein air painting workshop in Tuscany, a wedding in Portugal and a recent residency in UK’s Lake District, have been the collective inspiration for Pamela’s latest exhibition, ‘Wish You Were Here’.
Her suitcase now carries canvas, oil paints and brushes, the tools for mixing surrounding colours, to create a series of ‘postcards from my palette’. Pamela’s previous solo exhibition at Chapel Off Chapel, ‘Women in Love’, demonstrated her responses to the impact of light and the framework of life drawing. ‘Wish You Were Here’ reveals her experiences of being within a land or seascape and capturing its essence.
