Sue Lees Watercolour Artist

Welcome to my gallery

Hello, welcome to my website. I hope that you enjoy looking at my work. The images are some of my favourites from an unsystematic trawl of my art.

Highgate Watercolour Group 2020 Exhibition

I am planning to exhibit some paintings in the Highgate Watercolour Group's 2020 Exhibition in Lauderdale House, Waterlow Park, Highgate Hill, London N6 5HG, from Wednesday 11 November to Monday 7 December. As the virus situation currently stands it is considered that small distanced groups of masked people (under 6!) going round the extensive airy galleries of Lauderdale House will be safe. Please come and cheer yourself up by looking at a fresh collection of varied and original artworks.

I have put up a collection of work which will be in the exhibition below - if you would like to purchase a painting please email me via susan@lees.org.uk

2020

Coronavirus has capsized my year, as it has with millions of people everywhere, though as yet I have avoided catching the virus, and the pleinair season has been rather restricted. I have been painting my vintage china, amongst other subjects, it has taken lockdown to persuade me to look closely at my vintage treasures, and they have been such fun to paint.

My Background

I have been painting in watercolour for nearly three decades, and continue to find creating images in watercolour and other media on paper a fascinating experience. I am out and about with my art gear as much as possible, in London, East Anglia, and wherever anybody is kind enough to invite me. I belong to the Highgate Watercolour Group, the Islington Art Society, and the Society of East Anglian Watercolourists, and go painting with the London Urban Sketchers and the London Cafe Sketchers when dates allow. I am also on Instagram as suesymslees.

I drew and painted as a child, teaching myself how to draw horses, an obsession for many years. I have an art A-level, and as an adult studied under the excellent teacher Peter Evans. Since then I have learnt from painters around me, available teaching aids and the occasional painting course and class. I am still learning, and I very much hope that I always will be.
