Rosemary’s vibrant, translucent watercolour paintings echo her interest in complex patterns of shape, light, colour and texture. Being inspired by the unusual viewpoint or subject matter, she works with a limited palette allowing the painting to evolve using many layers of wet into wet pure watercolour. This gives a unity and living colour throughout her wide range of subject matter.
Besides working in her studio with the many photographs and sketches gathered on location the she enjoys the challenges and excitement of painting ‘en plein air’.

Rosemary has won two SWA awards In 2005 she  won the Anthony J Lester Art Critic Award and in 2011 the Rosemary and Co Award. She has exhibited for several years at the Mall Galleries with the Royal Society of Marine Artists and R I. In 2005 and 2007 she won the Derwent Artist Magazine Award at Patchings.
