LIZ YULE

Born in Fife, Liz lives in Tayport, with her husband. A former civil engineering technician, she retired from that career in 1987 to bring up her family. 

Liz is mainly inspired by landscapes, seascapes, harbour and street scenes both at home and abroad. Her watercolour and acrylic paintings have been exhibited in galleries throughout Scotland. Most notably Liz won Channel 4 television programme " Watercolour Challenge" in 2001. Her prize was a painting holiday in Venice. 

The art critic Brian Sewell judged the paintings. In 2022 Liz won the SAA professional artist of the year competition. Other prizes have included Shell Expo awards, and Atelier awards. One of her paintings is included in Art UK public collection. She has had a number of important commissions including ten paintings for Victoria hospital, Kirkaldy. Liz used to take students to Languedoc, France for painting holidays. Now she has established an excellent reputation as a teacher. Students find her passion and enthusiasm for painting infectious, she holds her classes in Tayport.

'St Monans harbour'. My main aim in this painting was to capture the feeling of bright sunshine. The contrasting orange and blue colours intensify the drama. Moonlit sky.

'Kinshaldy forest' A limited red and ochre palette has been used in this acrylic painting. A path leads you through the Autumn trees.

'Pittenweem'. Floodlit houses contrast dramatically with a night sky and dark interior in this watercolour painting.
