Saturday Artists - Ruth Cooper
Kāpiti Arts Guide Listing no. 48
I love to paint landscapes and prefer to work in acrylics on canvas. Over time I have learned to be more observant of the landscape around me - paying attention to light, shade, colours, proportions and perspective. I am self-taught. I became fond of aerial views of landscapes after my first trip in a plane as a teenager. I have frequently traveled around New Zealand collecting photos to inspire paintings – as well as overseas. New Zealand artists are so fortunate to have a wealth of beautiful scenery within easy reach. I participated in the Kāpiti Arts Trail last year as well as the NZ Art Show in June this year.
