Sue Walker

 

Wild places and elemental landscapes are the starting point for much of Sue’s work and she is particularly drawn to coastal scenes. She finds inspiration in the landscapes of East Anglia, Mediterranean visits and sailing trips and travels in the Far East and South America.  Her choice of subject matter is often decided by her emotional response to the mood and colours of the scene.

There are periods when Sue’s work is fairly abstract but when using watercolour and pen and wash she enjoy’s the challenge of more careful drawing.  In either case the paintings are based on direct observation through on the spot pen and wash drawings and colour notes, often in small sketchbooks.  Photos are used as a useful tool to record fleeting moments such as sunrises and sunsets where the quality of the light and the colour changes rapidly. 

Back at her studio near Cambridge and away from the distractions of the open air, Sue tries to capture something of the original experience whilst developing a more abstract approach.  In these pictures she aims to convey a sense of the mood and atmosphere of the location.
