Prue van der Hoorn – ‘Rainbow Funding Artist’

I am a watercolour artist based in a village just outside Cambridge. For many years I have been teaching watercolour and exhibiting in Cambridgeshire.

2020 has been a tough year for many of us with the lockdown and limited working hours. On the plus side, I think artists have had more time to paint and get creative. For myself, I decided to use the time to create the Rainbow Calendar and give the project some purpose by donating a percentage of my sales to the Covid appeal run by NHS Charities.

The planning and painting for each month has been a most enjoyable project. I tried to vary the style with traditional and abstract illustrations.  However the main theme is colour as the Rainbow has become a symbol of support for the NHS workers throughout the pandemic.

I hope you will enjoy looking at it throughout 2021
