Iris Saunders 2

Here are some of my earlier paintings. Mouse over a picture for more information.


I studied here for 3 years after passing the entrance exam. One of my favourite subjects, oast houses, has such a variety of shades and colour, I especially like the field of buttercups (painted with yellow gouache).

Unfortunate Flashes:

These two paintings were framed behind glass, hence reflection of the camera flash, but I think it looks quite good on the ship.
