About Ellen Watson

About the artwork

The work of Ellen Watson embodies the elemental forces of the rugged Cornish coastline, with rich textures of oil paint and palpable creative energy. Taking inspiration from her surroundings and the neighbouring Isles of Scilly, she portrays untamed seascapes and weathered costal views, focusing mainly on the strength of light and ‘that point of contact between the sky and the horizon’ (Watson). She uses a sophisticated range of colour, from wholesome bases of earthly tones to gentle shades of blue and green merging with pastel skies.

Watson describes her process as ‘a form of travel whereby stuff is revealed and inadvertently uncovered, so in a way a picture is found rather than made’.

Although we are given figurative clues to ground our perspective within her main seascape works, there is more of a lean towards abstraction as she strives to immerse the viewer within the vastness of her subject matter and the visceral presence of the paintings themselves.
