Original watercolour on St Cuthbert Mill watercolour paper, set in a contemporary snow white mount.
"I painted 'Floating' after watching our local sailing regatta in Seaview on the Isle of Wight. I loved the movement of the flags and the sails. My work is always striving to illustrate a suspense or frozen event. Here I've tried to describe the joy, chaos and motion."

For Joanne Hummel-Newell, mark making and its deviation from cognitive processes can create a candid outcome. It is a particularly generous enterprise, as Hummell- Newell allows the space in her work for found artefacts, bearing the traces of another’s hand. An array of references, a near synaesthesiac grasp on the world and a multitude of conceptual interests cohere in these elegant and minimalist compositions brimming with energy.
