Elisabeth Howlett.  Artist. 

I’m Elisabeth Howlett – professional artist. I paint in my studio in Adelaide, South Australia. I make paintings by applying generous quantities of impasto oil paint to either canvas or linen. I use a traditional paintbrush to make my work, the daily brush party, and occasionally a painting knife. I love native flowering plants with a passion. Welcome to my Artist Website!!

I paint expressive floral portraits of native Australian flora with vivid, deliberate and generous brushstrokes of impasto oil paint.

ONLINE ART CLASSES

I am currently working on building my teaching practice, it will be online soon! In the meantime contact me for my available online courses. elisabethhowlett@internode.on.net

I love teaching art to people. I have an online art classes for adults available in the form of a 5 week course. It is all pre-recorded so you are able to watch the lessons anytime, at your convenience. I take you through step-by-step the way I approach making a painting, so that you are able to follow this through and complete a work on canvas.The course is suitable for beginners or new career artists. The ethos of my class is to imbue confidence in the artist. The lessons are divided up into bite size pieces that you can watch at your own pace. Its all pre-recorded so you can watch, draw and paint whenever you wish. The main thing I hope to convey is confidence in yourself as an artist, and above all, trust in yourself in making art. The intention is this course takes you further on your painting and art journey, and that it adds significantly to your ease of being at the making art. Get in touch: elisabethhowlett@internode.on.net
