Judy Linnell has painted all her life and also taught painting and drawing for over 30 years, running workshops and tutoring painting holidays in Corsica, Crete and the Yorkshire Dales. Judy’s love of Wales resulted in a move to Pembrokeshire in 2005 with her husband. She devotes much of her time to painting the wild and atmospheric landscape of the Pembrokeshire coastline, North Wales, the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales.
Judy prefers to interpret and suggest rather than to describe, in order to convey the magic and mystery of the place and loves the vibrancy, luminosity and fluidity of the watercolour medium. She likes to exploit its unique qualities to the full, taking risks, experimenting and pushing colour to the limits with large fluid washes combined with delicate line work and all kinds of marks to express herself. Her approach is essentially intuitive and spontaneous, painterly and loose and her subjects are usually flowers, still life, landscape and seascapes.
