Jude Scott is an award winning artist who was born in Perth, Western Australia and has studied painting in oils, watercolour and drawing with professional tutors and artists in Western Australia, New South Wales and China over the years. She is a passionate advocate of watercolour, and as such has chosen to specialize in this medium because of the diverse nature and complexity of watercolour. â€œWatercolour is such a beautiful and expressive medium to use, it can be powerful and bold or delicate and subtle, it is a medium that can also produce exquisite textures and marks that never fail to fascinate me. I find inspiration from a diverse range of subjects and always love a fresh challenge. Favourite subjects that I love to paint are serene landscapes, vibrant florals and intriguing faces, I always have a multitude of ideas for the next painting, â€œsays Jude. Jude is a popular teacher, demonstrator and a workshop tutor and facilitator in Western Australia, running regular classes in her Canning Vale studio. Jude tutors workshops on demand for small or large groups throughout the year in city and country locations in Western Australia and overseas. As an extension of being an avid traveller Jude tutors international workshops, June 2018 and June 2019 at Ubud, Bali and has been invited to tutor two courses at The Watermill, Tuscany Italy in August 2019.
I just love the whole creative process. The subject, choosing the format, designing and choosing which of all those lucious colours to get onto the paper. Fabulous stuff!
I am never stuck for a subject as we have a garden filled with flowers, I have a raft of favourite objects dotted around for still life, amazing landscapes are everywhere and then I see an intriguing face, I will never run out of ideas!
