Profile

Childhood Farnham Art School Saturday sessions mentioning artistic ability were squashed at an early age by worried parents and later disregarded by confidence issues and life choices until breaking out again in the 90’s when time allowed for participation in a pre-degree foundation course in Art and Design. From that point on Lindsay became hooked on Watercolour and has spent the intervening years concentrating on obscuring or enhancing reality with atmospheric impressions and techniques using pure watercolour, often without preliminary drawing or the use of further media.
Combining her busy life with her art, realising people that mind don’t matter, and the people that matter to her don’t mind, she has now become a respected Watercolour Artist, undertaking many commissions, with her work exhibited in Surrey, Hampshire, London and France.

“My work unashamedly has a strong impressionistic resemblance to the subject but I like to leave some chance for the viewer to insinuate their own thoughts, feelings and conclusion.
I sometimes draw first or sometimes not. Layers of pure watercolour paint create depth while whites are pure paper without paint. If I am painting ‘en plein air’ I like to do a detailed pencil sketch initially, to use up my obsession with detail and check tonal value, then I can start painting, with little or no sketching, but with confidence.
Inspiration is drawn from anything and everything, landscapes, buildings, people, animals, flowers -there will be something glimpsed that just catches my eye and makes me want to paint it for pure pleasure.
My theme is to improve on reality. If it makes a picture in my mind - I want to enhance it on paper.”
