Jean Noble is a member of the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolours and the Society of Women Artists and has exhibited widely throughout the UK, including the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, the Mall Galleries and the Royal College of Art. She works in oils, pastel and water-based media in her studio from previously made sketches.
‘All my work begins in front of the subject, whether in the urban landscape or the countryside. I allow my eyes to relax and my thoughts to absorb what is around me, so that from the initial sketch I make a response to my surroundings. Back in my studio I interpret my sketches into paintings that once started often dictate changes and further responses to colour and shapes that I recollect from my original interpretation.’
