“Touch of tranquillity” is a new exhibition of watercolours by Leeds artist Suzanne McQuade.
Suzanne quit her long standing customer service job about five years ago to take the plunge and become a full-time artist.
She is passionate about watercolours and how this medium’s translucency allows light to flood into her landscapes and seascapes. “Using watercolours is like teamwork; I have to allow the watercolour to move and merge, and utilise the patterns it creates.”
Suzanne’s inspiration comes from the diversity of the British countryside and coast, and she paints what she finds captivating, from a dramatic sky to underwater rocks. “I try to make the scene in front of me to be as beautiful as possible”.
The exhibition opened at village gallery York on Tuesday 31st August 2021, and it runs until Saturday 23rd October.
