Louise Pilditch — Painter

Prehistoric art, life drawing and landscape are some of the sources of inspiration for my paintings.
I hope the titles I give my work provide a clue for my intention for the painting. I love the challenge of finding the essential visual elements to indicate an idea.

I have recently returned to working with Encaustic (Beeswax painting medium). I love the texture and carving possibilities of layers of wax. My lock down project was exploring the medium of Cold Wax, which is even more seductive than lovely encaustic.

I am an artist member of the Arts and Craft Co-operative Made in Ross. We had an exhibition at Goodrich Castle planned for this Summer, hence the three paintings inspired by the castle. (Exhibition will be 2021)
