Sarah Williamson‘s paintings and illustrations are wonderful. She generally works wet on wet with gouache which isn’t easy as you have to work fast and have absolute confidence and control of your brush. Her use of this technique adds a kind of semi abstract feeling to her pictures, a liveliness that simply can’t be replicated using a different style. Her inspiration comes from the simple things, the everyday, the life and colour around her.
Here’s what she has to say about her work:
I used to work, but one day I picked up a pen and images came, I began to see all of the dreams the decay and the excess around me. Around all of us. I once read in a very famous book, “All things are full of labor, man cannot utter it…” But I don’t think of what I do now as labor. My work feels like a natural product of curiosity about our surroundings: people and things disintegrating, dreaming, living, not living. The world is full of color, I cannot utter.
