In the same way that I see plants and landscapes, I am excited by the form and colour in figure/bodies/people.

I find figures in movement particularly exciting as they create constantly changing shapes, as in this Tai Chi form.

Lady Grey – so called as I used pencil and put her in a grey frame.

I painted this whilst listening to the Van Morrison track of this name.  I felt an urgency and flow which I tried to reflect in the painting.

These works represent my transition from ceramics to painting media.  I did the drawings in a Paris cafe and once home, I cut out the figures in white earthenware clay, used ceramic colours, fired them and then mounted them on board. I call them my 3D images.

As a fine artist, Judith attempts to convey the essence of her subject matter with particular attention to colour, structure and form.  Journeys enrich and stimulate her ideas. Her paintings evolve from memories of her own experiences and by focusing on them, Judith invites the viewer to bring their own memories, experiences and emotions to the painting.

 

 

 

Dark light

I was tired of using black on white so I reversed it. The black paper by coincidence reflected the darkness of the studio with only a fraction of light filtering through the drawn curtains. The minimal colours were suggested by a flash of red on the curtains and the turquoise rug. I feel this painting evokes the still reflective atmosphere of that life session.
