Elizabeth Duguid

Colour is the vital key to my work. Through colour I endeavour to capture the life force of my environs with spontaneity and energy, using all media.

Mountains of Mystery 5 Watercolour on Arches Paper 34 x 100 cm


'A spontaneous work which gives off the quality of life with its lush paint and brushstrokes'
William Robinson - artist

'To the uninitiated eye this painting may get the classic response of  "my four year old could do that!" However, this is a beautifully controlled work and the longer one sits in front of it, the longer one appreciates it. It is what has been left out of the work which adds to its immediacy'.
Paul Delprat - Head of Julian Ashton Art School

'Such vitality, with a sweeping sense of form, without "niggle".'
Max Angus - artist

‘This energetic painting seems to be the result of vigorous, committed observation. All aspects of the landscape are caught in the immediacy of execution, so that although the particularities maintain their identity, the whole picture plane is able to be read as a unity of gestural marks and subtle colour.’
Pat Hoffie. Griffith University

'A remarkably intelligent painting - a freedom in the gestural brushstrokes and a great colouristic freedom'
Dr. Sasha Grishen -
Head of Art History, ANU 2002
