A COLLECTION of art based on the Sue Ryder hospice in Nettlebed was displayed at the Lemongrove Gallery in Henley last week.
The artworks were the result of the hospice?s Big Art Competition in which people were invited to the hospice to paint, draw, photograph or sketch the grounds to help them with their entries. Brian MacShane, of Northfield End, Henley, won the drawing, painting or mixed media section for his depiction of the view of the lake from the hospice.
He said: ?I used many techniques in my piece, including stripping, sweeping and masking. I went to the hospice to look for inspiration and came across a few views. The one I chose is the one I had most resonance with. I didn?t expect to win because there were so many great entries.? The runner-up was Janet Roberts, of Swiss Farm, Henley, with a watercolour. Naik Remesh, a doctor from Sonning, won the patient?s choice award for his photograph taken in the grounds.
Gallery manager Kirsty Chapman said: ?We were really impressed with the talent of the artists and it was nice to see how they interpreted the same place in different ways.?
