HARBOUR House in Kingsbridge is the venue for an exhibition of travel paintings exploring the wilder and less frequented parts of the landscape.
Seizing the Moment opens at the gallery on Tuesday, August 6.
Margaret Deans, Christine Linfield and Anne Scarratt present their third joint exhibition at Harbour House.
Having worked together for 12 years, they regularly paint together in Devon, Cornwall and Scilly, and have just set off for their third visit to Shetland.
There will be a preview evening on Monday, August 5, from 6pm until 8pm, and a further opportunity to meet all of the artists on Saturday, August 10, from noon until 4pm, with an informal gallery talk at 2pm.
While working in Cornwall towards this exhibition, Margaret Deans found he unpredictable weather encouraged a shift in practice.
She says: "I have been enjoying the sudden shifts of light which illuminate the land, the dark sky which enhances the colours of land and sea, the clarity of an early morning frosty sun, and the rarity value of days when I could work outside."
Christine Linfield lives and works on Dartmoor, her inspiration coming from land, sea and constantly shifting weather patterns.
She explains: "'Whenever possible I work on site. Walking in the landscape is an integral part of the process of making paintings, and increasingly I sense the need and the power of the process of returning to familiar places."
For Anne Scarratt, the concept of seizing the moment represents taking whatever the weather has to offer, even at its gloomiest, and using it to transmit her feelings into paint.
She said: "Last winter I took a small sketchbook around the deserted lanes of our village, trying to look anew at the familiar landscapes and vistas.
"Trees, gateways and fields were scarcely visible at times, and new colours, mostly mixed on the canvas, were required to render the feeling of enclosure created by the damp atmosphere.
"From this beginning I continued in the clearing weather: it became something of a quest to seek out more overlooked places which offered an opportunity of depicting these unspoilt Devon lanes."
Exhibition opening times are 10am until 5pm daily, until the close of the exhibition on Sunday, August 18.
Admission is free.
