Susan’s paintings

“Chúc Mừng Năm Mới”…that’s Happy New Year in Vietnamese.
Susan and her husband, Neil, visited Vietnam at the beginning of 2020, during the Tểt celebration for the Lunar New Year. She took many photos and drew sketches of their holiday. Susan used these references to paint the following two pictures in pen, inks and watercolour, beautifully evoking her visit to an amazing country.

Susan was also inspired by the suggested idea of using the two Pantone Colours of the Year, yellow and grey. Using just Payne’s Grey and Lemon Yellow she has mixed the two colours into many different colours and tones. The subject was a walk from the first lockdown in April 2020. What a dramatic sky over fields, hope you got home before the clouds burst!

Super work, Susan, you have created paintings that will hopefully inspire other members to get painting this month.
