Oil Paint on Paper
A6 (15x10cm) Original Artwork
Signed on Verso
Bess Harding is an artist and illustrator, based in Worthing, West Sussex. Always creative, it took a few years of experimenting with different media to find her niche.
She has been painting with oils since 2016, and is most interested in still life, with the odd seascape and landscape, and a more recent foray into semi-abstract work. She seeks to capture a feeling of calm grace and quiet composure no matter what the subject.
