Anne Ware’s work on exhibition at Staithes Gallery

Anne Ware paints primarily in watercolour, a medium that has captivated her for decades and with which she aims to capture mood and light, from real or imagined landscapes and seascapes.

She has painted all her life but since leaving full time employment a couple of years ago, she now dedicates the majority of her time to painting.

Her paintings are inspired by locations in the UK, as well as warmer climes abroad. The incredible winter storms experienced in December 2017 in Staithes and Whitby have been, and still are, the source of a lot of her seascapes.

Although she paints a lot from imagination for studio paintings, she also enjoys the immediacy and challenges of painting en plein air.
