Diana Armfield RA

Diana Armfield works in many mediums including that of pastel, watercolour, printmaking and drawing. The drawings that she creates are left very rough, but still distinguishable, with many lines and layers, creating her image. In the two drawings that the Curwen Gallery display, Diana has draw the subjects of a flock of sheep, both in a field and from the view of a window. Both of these are drawn in a similar, rough style.
