'BRISTOL FASHION' by Bristol born Artist SUSAN HARTRY, is a 28x38cm Watercolour painting on Saunders Waterford 300g Not Paper, using Professional Artist watercolour paints. Always with camera in hand, the reference photo was taken whilst walking along the Harbourside of Bristol's Floating Docks on a lovely sunny afternoon - frequently stopping to sit a while to admire the view, watch the comings and goings of pleasure boats, and spot changes from memories of days gone by. Once a busy tida

My love of art pushed me to a place of just seeing nature on canvas and trying to translate what I see. I am an old-age puck rocker but may I say a nice one? My ethos is to enjoy life and just be nice and if my art makes someone happy then my job is done

I work in sketchbooks 98 of the time with my favorite pens. I prefer to draw live rather than from photos, so at night I find my characters on TV. Watercolor or other mixed media may find its way into the drawing, depending on which sketchbook I used. This was drawn in a Strathmore 500 series mixed media softcover book. The paper takes mixed media extremely well.

Title or Location: Fort Bend County Texas. This fence post stands next to a gate on a friends ranch, just off of Hwy 59 S.
On February 3rd of this year (2024), I was at my music duet partners ranch near Beasley and Rosenberg Texas, just off of Hwy 59 S. We often times go out to the country to rehearse our music when the weather is nice. I?ve driven through the gate and past this post many times before but on this particular day, the sun was shining just so perfectly and the old, rusty, broken chain really captured my attention. I jumped out of the truck and snapped a few photos, knowing I would eventually paint this

This watercolour was painted about 16 years ago.I was looking for some images of people as a drawing/painting exercise, and happened to come across this photo in a book. My immediate thought was this would make a very interesting picture.The scene is a cattle auction somewhere in North Yorkshire.

Title or Location: Peek-a-Boo
Spring is in the air. I have recently been doing some daffodil paintings. For this painting I did a wash and instantly saw the potential for more daffodils and space for the lamb peeking through them. One of my former instructors always said, ?Listen to your painting.? This is exactly what I did here. Possibly, the idea of a lamb was inspired by the season of Easter as well.
