Penny Mechen

‘Nightwatch’ watercolour

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 about researching different processes, and am always excited to try something new so that my work continues to expand and evolve. What you won’t find is a ‘one style/colour fits all’ predictability. This may mean you won’t love every picture…but you won’t be bored either!
I have exhibited in The Montague Gallery in Worthing and open houses, as well as shops and cafés. I have also completed several portrait, seascape and still life commissions for public and private display or  gifts.
