The Landscape in Winter

Suze has been drawing all her life. After an initial undergraduate degree, she pursued fifth-year studies in printmaking and ceramics at the University of Washington. Her professional career has included the graphic design of printed materials and interface designs for commercial and prototype software applications. In the last few years she has devoted herself to the watercolor medium. From traditional landscape sketches –she calls them her love letters to the planet—to large scale industrial subjects and the numbering systems on utility poles, she loves to bring attention to what people don’t usually notice. She finds intense visual experience to capture everywhere she looks.

What’s a Northwest painter to do when it’s too cold, too wet, and just too grey out there? Through watercolor, we can still convey the spirit of the outdoors in strong, bold paintings – local whites and greys are opportunities begging for color! Under the guidance of watercolorist extraordinaire Suze Woolf, and studio exercises using still life, photographic notes, or previous paintings, we’ll explore additional ways to make fresh, spontaneous, and spirited landscape paintings without having to stand out in the rain.
