Lizzie Black lives and works in Mousehole, Cornwall. She is a plein air painter enjoying the immediacy of painting in the landscape and responding to her surroundings. She is a familiar figure in the village painting harbour scenes and various corners and viewpoints in the locality.
As an artist who paints every day the long dark winter followed by the restrictions of lock down has drawn her creative practice closer to home.
Lizzie collects flowers from her family garden and the surrounding cliff walks and paths creating compositions at home. She jokes: ‘Rather than being presented with a harbour full of moored boats that I can’t physically move I can choreograph my own scene and by moving the bottles and vessels that I paint.’ This has turned out to play a large part of the whole creative process.
In her domestic surroundings she has become acquainted with her collections of flowers and favourite collected bottles and jugs. Painting these studies has become a place of refuge in the day and a reason to celebrate life. The light reflecting from a neighbouring jug or even the warmth of a shadow from a flower onto a surface are explored with equal curiosity and interest.
Lizzie Black had a formal art training at Falmouth School of Art and Bower Ashton School of Art in Bristol. A lot of her skills and learning came from her father the artist Bernard Evans enabling to develop her own style and artistic journey. She exhibits across the West Country and has exhibited with the Royal Institute of Oil Painters at the Mall Galleries in London for the past three years.
