The Picture Room, Newlyn Art Gallery



A series of new oil and acrylic paintings on handmade gesso by Elizabeth Loveday, featuring characters from Cornish Folklore and the artist’s life, plants, and Cornish landmarks. Using colour, texture, scale, and figurative drawing, she builds scenes of tenderness and frivolity to describe her home. Plains of smooth gesso contrast the grainy, which is mixed with Cornish sand and earth. This backdrop holds the characters in a dream-like state, in a moment that captures the mood of place.


All works are for sale.
