To celebrate the launch of the Rye Society of Artists’ (RSA) new website, Rye News continues to profile one of their artists each week – including links to their website and social media accounts so you can keep up-to-date on their activities.
You can view some of the RSA member’s work at their spring exhibition, entitled ‘There will be Growth in spring’, at Rye Art Gallery from Monday, April 12 2021. In addition, the RSA will be hosting their 70th Anniversary Summer Show later in 2021.
This week, the artist in focus is Cliff Howe
Cliff started painting at the age of fourteen, eventually specialising in abstract art until a move to East Sussex prompted him to experiment with watercolour in order to capture the beauty of the area.
After a rough sketch he applies undercoat followed by layers of paint spread with a palette knife or brush to create texture.
The final image evolves gradually and is often different to the one originally planned.
