Watercolour

David Hobden

I have always had a passion for art, drawing and painting from an early age and have maintained this interest throughout my working life. I am a member of the Attic Art Society and have exhibited at Brighton Art Gallery, The Oxmarket Chichester, Worthing Museum and the Grange Rottingdean. In my early fifties I embarked on a foundation course in art & design at Brighton and this was to have a profound effect on my style of working. I think my work has evolved both technica…

I’m a Sussex-based artist who enjoys working in different media. My watercolours are inspired by nature, including our beautiful South Downs. My prints are mostly made from paintings done on my travels. I regularly take painting and hiking trips in mountains such as the Alps. I make mosaic mirrors and linocuts and also carve in wood. I am happy to undertake commissions, including for customised paintings and mosaics.

Creating a 2D image of a 3D subject can be frustrating and torturous as often as it is satisfying and joyous, but what I love about it is that it is always totally absorbing. You will see from my work that I enjoy different subject matter as well as different mediums and styles. I find that different mediums suit different subjects, and switching between all these things keeps the work spontaneous and fresh-for me as well as, I hope, for those viewing it. I am passionate abou…

A few years ago, while I was studying at Herefordshire College of Art and Design, I daubed acrylic, smoothed on pastels, crumbled charcoal and gouged and stamped lino prints endlessly. There was always one medium that I always returned to however. Watercolour and ink, with which I developed my illustrative style, although at the time I had no idea in which direction it would eventually lead me! Skip forwards to more recent times, settled happily in Shoreham (add one husband,…

My paintings are all inspired by my surroundings. I live in West Sussex and have constant inspiration in the Land and Seascapes around me. Visiting seabirds are a constant delight. Oystercatchers, Egrets and Turnstones among them I’m often drawn to paint them. Mostly working in Oil on canvas from my little studio at home in Ferring, from which I can see Highdown Hill, tonal values and the play of light is a delight to try and capture. My dogs soon draw me out of the studio an…

Gill Dixon

Originally trained as a Stage Designer, for many years I worked in costume design and production for the two London opera houses. Recently I have been creating paintings, embroideries and textile based pieces in response to my immediate environment; the river Adur in all its changing moods, the tidal ebb and flow under the looming presence of the South Downs and even the  sun-baked streets of Shoreham. Most recently I have been  working in acrylics making paintings and drawin…

Julia Ann Field

I paint plein air Landscapes, Sacred-scapes and saucy little “Willendorfs” based on the Paleolithic Venus figurine. ​

Val Chandler

Living on the coast at Shoreham I find water a great inspiration for many of my paintings. I have been painting for 10 years and enjoy experimenting with different applications of watercolour, including the unconventional technique of using watercolour on canvas. I am a full member of the Association of Sussex Artists and show my work regularly in various exhibitions locally.

Susanne Hopkinson

I work mainly in watercolour and pen although I have dabbled in pencil crayon and pastels, with the odd foray into oils.  I have lived in Sussex for over twenty years and feel that the Downs have a special place in my paintings , hence the multitude of sheep.  There is a rather illustrative edge to my painting and sometimes I venture beyond what I see and instead use my imagination . Hence the paintings of ladies with dogs or the exuberant floral depictions. My Shop Seasonal…

Handmade books I love books, paper and ink. I also enjoy manipulating paper. This has led me to make notebooks and journals from a variety of hand made papers. I also make books of envelopes called memory keepers for storing mementos of every day life. Anything from bus tickets, and locks of hair to old photographs, objects that hold a special memory for the owner.

Sue Hawksworth

I have long been inspired by the effect man and nature have on the landscape. Light and shadow play an important part in my work enabling the pattern and form of the landscape to be revealed. I have explored these themes in a range of media including monoprint and collograph. I enjoy working with different materials and processes, and the flexibility of mixing media enables me to explore more abstract forms. Recently, I have been making drawings of ruined buildings, including…

Shirley Trevena

Shirley Trevena has always pushed the boundaries of watercolour and is regarded as one of Britain’s most innovative watercolourists. Shirley breaks the conventional rules of watercolour in many different ways: through her bold compositions, unusual perspectives, fascinating textures an, above all, the strength and vibrancy of her colour combinations. “Since I resigned from my planning job over 25 years ago to become a full-time artist, I have had the most wonderful adventure…

Michael Windross

I was born in Carlisle in 1942. From 1952-1956 I was a chorister of St. Paul`s Cathedral. It so happened that the wife of the headmaster of the choir school was a well-known artist, Eileen Price (SWA) and for the whole of this time I had what amounted to private tuition from her. At Lancing I took art A-level two years early with a view to going to art school. This did not happen. Instead I went to Cambridge and my art totally stopped. In 1964 I went to live in Antwerp and em…

Kim Adele Fuller

I live on the Sussex coast in Shoreham by sea and paint seascapes, landscapes, coastal and abstract themes. I am inspired by the ever-changing nature of the sea and the sky that surround me and try to reflect this in my paintings. I particularly enjoy the dramatic, yet transient effects of atmosphere and light and liberating feeling of the space and tranquility of the shoreline. I work primarily in watercolour as I feel it has a translucency and vibrancy hard to match in any…

Jean Farrer

I make drawings locally or when on journeys. I use these and digested memory to create my work.I am interested in using drawing, colour and light to create atmosphere and a sense of place. I paint in watercolours and oils and have made many artists prints. I have exhibited widely including in Ipswich, Cambridge, Bath, a number of venues in Brighton,  in Lewes, Chichester, Alfriston,and in various places in London.  I currently have work on show  in Ryde I o W, and the Ariege…

Frans de Leij

I did not go to art school – in fact, I trained as a biologist at the University of Wageningen (The Netherlands). Although, I am a self-taught painter, I have gained a lot of inspiration from the work of other artists, notably from impressionist water-colourists like Edward Seago, John Yardley, Edward Wesson, Nina Engle and Trevor Chamberlain. The work of these painters breathes an air of directness and freshness that is so attractive about watercolour and almost impossible t…

Christine Lloyd Walker

I use ceramic wall and floor tiles, often vintage or recycled discontinued tiles, to create modern and contemporary panels and framed pieces for interiors and gardens. My commissions have included interpreting children’s drawings for playground mosaics. I also paint acrylic landscape canvases and floral water colours in abstract form.
