Susanne enjoys all aspects of working with watercolour. She particularly likes the fluidity and unpredictability of the medium. She is fascinated by the number of approaches an artist can take: a quick colour notation can be added to a sketch as an aide memoire, or more considered studies can be made, exploring colour, atmosphere, time and place.
Where possible Susanne liks to work in situ; whether it be painting outdoors in an interesting setting or working from a model, either on a portrait or a life study.
She also works from references that allow her time to move away from mere representation by tentatively exploring mood and abstraction.
