Susie Lidstone

Personal Statement

I have been painting for 35 years and now work from my small studio in Farnham Surrey. The vibrant ever changing colours of flowers, plants and trees throughout the seasons has always fascinated me and I find that Watercolour is the perfect medium to capture their qualities. I think that their appeal is timeless and I hope to capture both the calm and vitality I always feel when studying my subjects.

I admire the work of Charles Rennie Mackintosh, in particular his ability to capture the lyrical quality of plant forms. Paul Hogarth and Graham Clarke for their quirky take on Architecture and buildings which I also paint to commission I have a fascination in painting bricks and all the details within Architecture, buildings and Alleyways.The Watercolours that I paint of Architecture Buildings and Aleyways are highly detailed. I find the perspective in Alleyways wonderful to paint  and try to convey the feeling to the viewer of what lies beyond. Finally Elizabeth Blackadder whose paintings filled me with delight as a child. In the past I have had the pleasure of having my work displayed with hers at both a London event and an exhibition in Godalming.
