Penny German ARBSA is a Northamptonshire artist working in oil, predominantly still-life in her studio or plein-air landscapes. In 2010 Penny embarked on a project whereby she executed a small daily painting from life in her studio as a record of her progress in the field of still-life. They are generally of whatever subject matter is to hand as she considers the process of studying and depicting the effects of light to be the goal rather than the finished work.  Penny regularly contributes articles to The Artist magazine and in 2015 was awarded The Artist Purchase Prize, judged by Prof Sir Ken Howard RA. Penny is an Associate Member of the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists and also is a regular exhibitor at the Royal Insitute of Oil Painters at the Mall Galleries in London.
