Jude SCOTT - Watercolour Society of WA Inc

Jude Scott is an award winning artist from Perth, Western Australia.

Jude has studied painting in oils, watercolour and drawing with professional tutors and artists in Western Australia and at the Charles Sturt University, Bathurst New South Wales, Australia and with Professors Huong , Wei and Wong from China. Exploring the differences between Chinese and Australian watercolour has been a fascinating and insightful experience and was furthered in 2016 with study at the Tsinghua University in Beijing.

Jude says, “I have always felt the urge to create and any time spent doing creative ‘stuff’ is my idea of heaven. If I am not able to get into the studio and be creative, I just don’t feel well!
Why watercolour? Because for me, the textural effects I strive for using colours ranging from delicate translucent tones and colours, through to the powerful opaque dark pigments fascinate me. Although watercolour can be notorious for its unpredictability, this is also part of the fascination of the medium. The challenge of adding visual texture to my artwork to enhance the content of the subject and to provide a little mystery for the viewer is always present. I love to paint diffused light in my works, especially the early morning and early evening landscapes, it is such a restful and beautiful time of the day to portray. When the viewer is able to feel the serenity and calmness intended, I feel I have accomplished my goal,” says Jude..

She is a popular tutor and demonstrator and who runs regular workshops throughout the year and teaches workshops and classes in her studio in Perth, also teaching in country locations that have included Newman in the North West of the state of Western Australia and Margaret River in the southwest. Jude Scott has also taught in Perth city locations of Claremont School of Art, Canning Arts Centre, council venues, various art societies and at Atwell Gallery over the past seven years.
This award winning artist is represented by the Boranup Gallery, www.boranupgallery.com in the Margaret River area of Western Australia.
