Central Coast artist Cheryl Bruce is primarily a watercolour artist, specializing in loose and impressionistic paintings covering a wide variety of subject matter from still life, to seascape, landscape, boats, horses and portraits.
Having travelled extensively and currently living on the NSW Central Coast Cheryl takes inspiration from the environment around her. The Central Coast provides an abundance of inspiration. She paints and sketches en plein air regularly with a focus on honing observation skills, and working quickly to impart the feeling of the subject rather than depict every detail.
Cheryl's passion for art and materials of all shapes and sizes, and a gift for sharing techniques makes her a popular mentor and tutor in Australia and internationally.
Mainly self taught Cheryl has no formal art training but studies with well known Australian and international artists such as Keiko Tanabe, Chan Dissanayake, Warwick Fuller, Kasey Sealy, along with Paul O’Kane & Herman Pekel.
While many artists consider themselves 'painters of light' I am drawn to the shadows, loving to depict the glowing and changing colours in the shadow passages, which I feel makes the highlights sing.
