Liz Myhill RSW is an observational artist whose work spans a wide range of subject matter, gathered through working directly from life. The act of walking, watching and recording numerous facets, whether fleeting or through lengthy study, allow her to gain a connection and sense of place. Although often an end in themselves, these field works are also developed into paintings and printmaking.
Liz studied at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design in Dundee and was elected to the Royal Scottish Society of Painters in Watercolour (RSW) in 2017. Contact - firstname.lastname@example.org

I’m a studio painter and a fair-weather plein-air painter, sketching and painting on location when it’s sunny (which happens more often than most people think) and in my studio when it’s wild. I enjoy working with oils, watercolour and acrylics. The former because if I’m caught out in a rain shower the painting doesn’t wash away. The latter because they dry fast, enabling me to work quickly, layer upon layer, building my way to a painting. Contact - email@example.com
