Ord River – West Kimberley

I love this piece and the judge approved too. Acrylic inks & paint on Arches 300gsm watercolour paper.

No second chances with ink as you paint, unlike watercolour where you have time to blot or wash it out, but I love the vibrancy of the inks.

Beautifully framed in oak with art glass, so no nasty reflections. Very happy.

SIGHTLINES

Uncategorized

Detail from a piece I had started in 2020 and although I liked it, felt it didn’t quite meet my image of what I wanted to say….so I reworked it in 2022 with cold wax & oil.
I wanted to show visual sightlines, bent lines of perspective, (both figuratively and literally) and man-made lines mingled with imagined migratory lines. I also wanted to show the layers built up in the earth.

I like where it ended up. Hope you do too,
Cheers, Suzy

Sunlit Hills before breakfast – Process

Uncategorized

I really wanted to capture the startling effect of the morning sun as it hit the hills of the canyon we were camped in, in central Australia. I drew it a couple of times. This is the first preliminary sketch in oil pastel.

SUNLIT HILLS before breakfast Preliminary sketch #1

I played with the shapes a second time, again in oil pastels, which captured a few more ideas

SUNLIT HILLS before breakfast Preliminary sketch #2

I kept the 30 x 30cm format and there were of course a few more changes along the way, but I was very happy with the result in acrylic on board.
