This is what we have been waiting for at the gallery - these amazing acrylic paintings from Heather Blacklock (or Yorga Art) - this style of painting looks deceptively simple - in many of Heather's paintings, she uses a droplet shape to build up a pointillist picture, usually of an animal painted in white on a single-coloured background - either black or red.  The tail of the droplet gives her work an unusual sense of movement - a 3D effect and people just want to touch it!  more of Heathers work can be found on our  website
