New Limited Edition Prints at Red Rag Gallery

Mark Preston Art Prints at Red Rag

Two new names have joined the growing range of Limited Edition Print artists at Red Rag Gallery this month. They are both British artists – Timmy Mallett and- Mark Preston .

Mark Preston was born in 1976 and is the younger member of a well-known artistic family. He studied illustration at Anglia University in Cambridge, but it was sketching and painting trips with his father, Rex Preston, to the Peak District, Cornwall and Scotland that really inspired him to become a landscape painter.

Mark Preston has been painting full time as a professional artist since leaving university at the age of 21. He paints in acrylics and works mainly in situ, with relatively little time spent in the studio. Red Rag has been selling Mark Preston original paintings for a number of years. The limited edition prints introduced by the gallery are: Beautiful Clear Day , Spring Towards Penzance , Rooftops Marazion and April Morning Mounts Bay . Mark Preston says: “For me experiencing the landscape and weather directly is essential to attempt to capture them in paint; I just need to be there to respond to the situation and the spirit of the landscape.”

Timmy Mallett: New print artist at Red Rag

Timmy Mallett is an accomplished painter whose love for painting came at an early age when his dad, also a keen painter, would encourage him. Later Mallett studied history of art as part of his degree at Warwick University.

Timmy Mallet takes his inspiration from the British countryside, and from trips all over the world. He is inspired by vibrant colours. His many and varied paintings and limited edition prints glow with colour. Red Rag have introduced seven Timmy Mallett prints. They are: and A Day at the Beach , Shoreline Sunset, Blowing Away the Cobwebs , Through the Window, Summer in France and Sunflowers in France . Each limited edition print series from the Red Rag British Art Gallery is normally available for immediate delivery and can be shipped worldwide.

New Limited Edition Prints from Andrew Macara at Red Rag

'Tree and Tobbogans' by British artist Andrew Macara

Red Rag Gallery has just released new Limited Edition Prints from one of the leading British artists Andrew Macara

Andrew Macara was born in Derbyshire in 1944. He is primarily a self taught artist although he did study contemporary modern British Art for a short period with Leonard Fuller at the St Ives School of Painting.

Macara has one of the most distinctive art styles of present day British Artists. He has enjoyed considerable success particularly for his highly sought after winter scenes, so we are delighted to introduce two new winter art prints. Both art prints feature Macara’s beloved Derbyshire and the magical English winter landscape. They are: Two Trees and Tree and Tobbogans. The high quality giclee prints are part of a series of just 95 signed and numbered limited edition prints which are now available from the gallery.

The latest prints are typical of Andrew Macara’s art work with his skilled treatment of light and shade. Long blue-grey shadows capture each snow scene perfectly. He looks for colour and movement and manages to convey a sense of life in his paintings.

Paintings by Andrew Macara are also available from Red Rag British Art Gallery together with these Andrew Macara Limited Edition Prints . For further information contact the gallery
