Known for her unique interpretation of landscapes & buildings, Sue Howells has developed a bold and vivid style. Mainly a watercolour artist using an economy of brushstrokes to allow the moody atmospheres of winter to transpire and the paint to speak for itself. Recently voted the best selling female artist in the UK by The Fine Art Trade Guild Sue Howells' art has recently become a much sought after commodity.
Known for her interpretation of landscapes and buildings, she has developed a uniquely bold and vivid style. Her blend of moody atmospheres and delicate abstraction has won her numerous awards and sell out shows across the country.
Recently focusing on towns and their inhabitants Sue has created a new world within watercolours. "On the Street Where You Live," one of her best sellers, the viewer is drawn into the magically dark and translucent street heaving with wandering locals.
Sue recently commented;
"I paint solely in watercolours aiming to produce pictures which are both energetic and of a strong compositional value. By using a great economy of brushstroke, I work as loosely as possible, letting the paint speak for itself as watercolours can be controlled but never bullied. I spend much of my time in Pembrokeshire recording the moody winter atmosphere of the coastal towns."
Sue continues to broaden her range of subjects, maintaining her national appeal and will be a well respected artist for the foreseeable future.
