About the Exhibition
Sue Nichol solo exhibition
Sue Nichol paints the rocky edges and coastlines of Britain, favoring England's North East Coast and the rugged charm of Staithes, with its humble fishing cobles.
Sue's fascination with the sea is born from places the artist visits over and over again. Sea coal, or sand are often added to her acrylic or oil paints in order to give a dynamic texture to the water.
Her True Colours is a focused portrait of Pilot Me B, a beautiful coble that is Sue's favorite. The water surrounding the small fishing boat shimmers with what seems like raindrops, and is one of the finest examples of Sue Nichol's texture technique.
Snow Approaching Stanage, an oil on canvas is a balanced painting of an impressive gritstone escarpment popular with climbers in a National Park in Derbyshire, bordering Sheffield England. Sue's Stanage is notable for its beautiful colors on the cliffs, towering among low snow clouds, accumulating its first dusting of white.
