Featured Artist: Haidee Jo Summers!

The Artist Felicity House Painting in Venice  24x30cms  Oil

Haidee Jo Summers – WOW! Her paintings are perfection! The perfect balance of looseness, the subjects are all interesting, colors are wonderful and she nails it every single time!

What a wonderful painting (above). This artist’s face is perfection – you can how she’s concentrating on what she’s painting. This is amazing!

Evening Light Polperro Harbour by Haidee Jo Summers  30×32″  Oil (Sold)

To me, this painting is pure magic. The stillness in the water and the beautiful reflections. The boats sitting so serenely in the water. Those little pops of orange that just make me love this painting even more. And those little touches that make it sing, like the orangey color underneath the tented canopy on the sailboat in the foreground, the shadows from the boats in the water and that wonderful sky! It’s perfect!

Read a bit about Haidee, from her website:

Awarded Artist of the Year 2012 by the Society of All Artists and one of the few artists chosen by the BBC to paint the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Pageant from the Millennium bridge, Haidee-Jo is a full-time professional artist known for painting landscapes and seascapes ‘en plein air’.                            

Her work can be seen regularly at the Mall galleries London where she exhibits with the Royal Society of Marine Artists, the New English Art Club and the Royal Institute of Oil painters of which she is a full member. Haidee-Jo writes regularly for The Artist magazine and has recently started work on her first book on oil painting with Search Press, having previously produced a large body of work for the Encyclopaedia of Watercolour Techniques. In recent years she has been invited to take part in UK and international plein air events whilst winning many prizes for her work which features fresh and vibrant brushwork coupled with keen drawing and observational skills, resulting in paintings that glow with light and sing with colour.    

Haidee-Jo gained a degree in illustration following an art foundation course and graduated in 1994. She has been exhibiting and teaching ever since, in recent years having cut back on teaching commitments to focus on painting. She believes very much in continuing to grow and develop all the while striving to express her personal voice in paint and to do so more and more succinctly.  

In June 2014 Haidee-Jo was awarded the £1800 The Artist purchase prize with her painting ‘Sails up in harbour’, a prestigious award selected by Ken Howard OBE RA. In September she won the £5000 Buxton Spa prize for her plein air painting ‘Walking through buttercups’, and in October won the first prize of £1000 for her painting ‘Work to be done, Elm Hill’ at Paint Out Norwich. In June 2015 she has been awarded the Great Art Award by The Artist magazine in association with Patchings for her painting ‘The thaw, Drove allotments’ and in June 2016 for her painting ‘The old milking parlor’.
