Weald of Kent Art Society (WOKAS)

Commended Art

Annie Watsham was delighted to be asked to open the Weald of Kent Art Society (WOKAS) Art Unlocked Exhibition PV in Tenterden, Kent in August 2020. This of course didn’t happen so she chose three Highly Commended and two Commended pieces on line.
Please see the results – it wasn’t easy!

Early Morning Swell by Tony Langham

Early Morning Swell Oil on Canvas
A very free style leaving no doubt as to the unpredictability and wildness of the sea. A sense of crashing, meeting an equally unpredictable sky. Nature in the raw. Quite a lonely feeling looking at it

Moored off Sun Pier by Graham Lock

Moored off Sun Pier Watercolour
Here a delicate and rather moving scene of mist rising around those beautiful boats at that very special time in the morning when all is quiet. A very evocative atmosphere, full of hope for the coming day

Dungeness by David Dixon

Dungeness Acrylic

I chose this as I loved the juxtaposition of the sad, decaying hull against what seemed to me to be an incredibly optimistic backdrop of the deep blue sea and the beautiful iconic white cliffs gradually drawing the eye to the horizon

Sunny Day in Lucca, Italy by David Aspinall


Sunny Day in Lucca, Italy Watercolour
Atmospheric in the extreme, I could step in to the scene

Plums by Mark Farrow


Plums LE Giclee Print Photomontage on Canvas
Beautiful composition
