Elisabeth Howlett.  Artist. 

WELCOME to my Artist Website!!

Hello! I’m Elisabeth Howlett and I’m a professional artist. I am an oil painter. 


Online ART CLASSES commence next week on Monday 6th April or Monday 13th of April because of Easter. 

The classes will consist of 1 video per week and am individual online follow up call with each participant per week.

The first class will commence  on Monday 6th April. Because the second week of the course is Easter, people could also commence classes on the week beginning Monday, 13th April (ie Easter Monday). 

The cost is $35 per class or $120 for a set of 4 classes, plus materials.

The cost of the materials under the acrylic list is between $150 -$200 if you need to purchase everything on the list, but can be reduced significantly where you are able to use materials you have at home already.  

The essential materials are willow charcoal, acrylic paint and acrylic impasto, which costs around $120. Using materials you already have at home will reduce the materials cost significantly.

“Late Summer Gum Blossom”, 76 x 76 cm, oil on linen, $1260

The above painting “Late Summer Gum Blossom” was completed during my artist residency at Burnside Council during February. I really enjoyed painting directly from the freshly picked gum blossom onto the primed linen. 


During February I was the artist in residence at Burnside Council. The image below captures me painting “Late Summer Gum Blossom“. 

These three works were prepared during my artist residency, up to the point of applying oil paint. I am painting the magnolia little gem portrait in oil first up. Everyone loved the lillypilly especially after the magenta berries were coloured, it seems to ignite something in people’s memories about childhood, or bush tucker, and other fond recollections. The roses seem to be a favourite also. I wanted to share and demonstrate my process whilst I was there, how I get to the point of applying oil paint, but mostly about what happens when I paint in oil.
