ELAINE REED - Watercolour Artist, Hill Head, Hampshire, UK
Elaine Reed lives in Hill Head, Hampshire, UK. She specialises in painting and teaching watercolour but enjoys working in all other media.
The natural word fascinates and inspires Elaine and she is interested in many aspects of our existence on Planet Earth: geology, astronomy, botany, biology and folklore and myth - to name a few.
Recently she has become very interested in mixing other materials in with watercolour paints including printing with and introducing real plant material on to the work. Her current subject matter includes pathways, hedgerows and the scrubby bits of land in between. Within the last year she's 'discovered' the Daniel Smith range of watercolours and is enjoying working with those very much.
Always, running through all the years of work, she returns constantly to the subject of the sea and coast - a favourite subject all her life’.
She gives classes, runs workshops and does demonstrations for art groups, teaches on painting holidays run by the Fareham Gallery and paints to commission.
In recent years her work has been exhibited during Hampshire Artists Open Studios, with Best of Hampshire Artists, The Portsmouth Open Art Show and Titchfield Art Show. Her work can be seen all year round in her home and in a few local art shops and galleries.
