Liz Chaderton - Liberating Watercolour Flora and Fauna

Course date: 12 July 2017

Liz Chaderton lives and works in a small village in Berkshire. She works mainly in watercolour on both paper and canvas, but experiments with printing techniques, particularly lino cutting. Liz is largely self-taught and has been exhibiting her work through exhibitions and galleries since 2009. A selection of her paintings are published and her work is licensed for cards, cushions and coasters...
Liz Chaderton - Liberating Watercolour Flora and Fauna
Inspiration comes from the animals and plants she encounters around her in the fields and hedgerows, growing on the allotment, or living on her (regretfully imaginary) small holding.

She aims for her paintings to raise a smile and make you see again the animals and flora we so often overlook. By doing so she hopes to nurture a more caring attitude to the wider environment.

The starting point for each picture is something that catches her attention and engages her emotions – a cows’ nose, a pig’s ear, maybe the cats’ whiskers… From there she tries to capture the essence of the subject, rather than the detail, believing that what is left out is just as important as what is put in.

Her paintings leave space for your imagination to wander, so are not usually set in a particular time and place.

For Liz colour and pattern, not details are her passions. She enjoys how colours work together, mix and interact, along with the texture and pattern in everyday objects and unexpected places. She says that she loves watercolour for its immediacy, vibrancy and the unpredicted routes it can take you down as the paint mixes on the paper.

“I aim to capture the spirit of the subject but also create a painting that contains a part of me as well’.

She runs a number of weekend workshops throughout the year Courses in 2017 with Liz Chaderton at Arte Umbrianear Reading and tutors local art groups, aiming to help people ‘loosen up’ and enjoy the full potential of watercolour.

She has travelled widely and when not painting Liz writes for a number of magazines and organisations, tends chickens and attempts to keep the weeds at bay on her vegetable patch.
