Sue Nichol

I paint in oils, often with lots of texture, recently I have been experimenting with cold wax. My paintings are mostly coastal and inland Yorkshire.

I find constant inspiration in the sea in all its moods and it is a subject to which I am invariably drawn, striving always to capture its movement and strength, which I find both fascinating and frightening. The wild hills and moors of North Yorkshire and Derbyshire provide a different challenge and I love to paint them as they are exposed to the extremes and intensity of light. I try to capture a particular atmosphere created, sometimes fleetingly, by swiftly changing weather conditions and am fascinated by nature’s ability to present a landscape in so many different tempers. I paint using oils, and revel in the flexibility of this media. I use brushes, fingers, sticks, knives, pens or anything else to hand to make marks on the canvas. Using various materials, such as sand, paste, even sea-coal, to create texture.
