This unique artwork is inspired by the wondrous colours of tropical waters of the Caribbean. A life-long fascination with the ocean and travel makes far-away islands top of my list, with the opportunity to create paintings of these special adventures! One of a series of more abstract artworks, this painting explores my response to the light dancing on the water’s surface with the movement and flow of the sea, capturing the essence of this ever-changing environment.
Creating many studies and sketches of the ocean and waves, the technique I have developed is to tear pieces from some of these paintings, then re-work over the watercolour studies with pen and other media to achieve a sense of motion or a feeling. Executed on high quality watercolour paper and using Winsor and Newton watercolour washes in an expressive and gestural way to create depth and vibrancy.
Image size is 5.5 x 7.25 inches. The painting is professionally surface mounted on soft white mount board and custom framed with contemporary limed softwood box frame with spacers and glass front so the artwork is set back from the glass. The artwork is READY TO HANG. The painting is signed on both the front and the back.

We’ve visited Sue’s beautiful studio fairly regularly when we happened upon our latest piece. We were struck by the composition and it’s eventual completion. Sue spent a lot of time talking about the painting, as well as where we were going to hang it to maximise the light quality - even suggesting we take it home to be sure! Her passion is very apparent and we are delighted to have more than one piece in the family.
I’m absolutely thrilled with my new painting from Sue, something I’ve aspired to own for some time and I couldn’t be happier. Sue was a delight, she took time to understand where the painting would hang and provided valuable guidance in helping me select my piece. Visiting her beautiful studio was a particular treat. I can’t wait to add to my collection.
It was lovely to meet you on Saturday and see your beautiful work. “Violet Meadows” has been given pride of place on our lounge wall! Thank you so much for allowing us to see it in our house before finally deciding to buy and for helping us to choose the right picture.
The painting has arrived safely and is every bit as beautiful as I had hoped! Thank you so much. When we decide where to hang it I will send you a photo. We love our new painting!
I have always admired Sue’s style of art. I love the feeling of calm and natural freshness that Sue’s paintings convey and enjoy keeping up-to-date with her new work. We love the vibrancy of our painting and the beautiful way it has been framed, really sets it apart. We will most certainly be adding to our collection very soon.
