A painter of cranes

October 14th, 2008 | by nick |
Anna Gallés is a natural history painter with a lovely eye for detail and a particular perchant for cranes. I’ve seen these gentle paintings in her studio and I found them enchanting in their calm. Anna tells me:

As a painter, I regard nature as my main interest. Drawing from nature requires observation and concentration, so it makes me learn a lot. Trying to sketch geese or cranes, in the cold, or exploring a lichen as it covers a branch, are teaching experiences. I try to capture the poetry that lies in the elements of nature, and sometimes I desire to add some imagination, too, because old stories and magic inspire me.
