An original watercolour painting of Baboons Chilling by South African wildlife artist Sue Dickinson. This artwork is on paper and has a mount around the artwork. 

Recognised as one of South Africa’s foremost Wildlife Animal Watercolour Artist, Sue Dickinson’s work is highly regarded and collected the world over. Sue has also been awarded membership of the Society of Animal Artists, based in New York, USA, internationally recognised as being the benchmark of wildlife art and artists.

"There is no room for error with watercolour – once it is on the paper, it is almost impossible to remove. I work carefully and accurately, but I'm not attempting to reproduce reality so I want to work fairly loosely too. It is important for the viewer to be able to see the mark of the artist, the journey I have taken on the page."

The composition of each artwork is critical, based upon the law of proportion known as the "Golden Mean" - an aesthetic principle used by the ancient Greeks. Focusing on the animal itself, Sue’s experience has taught her that "what you leave out is just as important as what you put in". To this end, you will notice the purposeful and very impactful negative space surrounding each of her artworks. Her stark, clean images concentrate exclusively on the animal and convey the wide-open spaces of Africa.

About Artist

Sue Dickinson (1958-2019) was one of South Africa's foremost wildlife watercolor artists. Her unique artworks found their way into private collections worldwide, including those of South Africa's first democratically elected president, Nelson Mandela, and Britain's Queen Elizabeth II.

Born in KwaZulu-Natal in 1958, Dickinson studied Fine Art at the University of the Witwatersrand before launching her graphic design studio. In 1994, she started painting full- time and was soon considered one of her generation's best wildlife artists.

Her optimism about and celebration of all things African led to her being asked to create artwork for several South African postage stamps, including airmail tags commemorating the discovery of Thulamela, the world-famous archaeological site in the Kruger National Park. Dickinson's style was unique as a wildlife artist: her perspective was fixed on the animal, using a white background to focus the viewer's eye on the subject.

Her preferred painting medium was watercolor on paper, widely acknowledged by artists as the most difficult. "There is no room for error," she said. "Once it is on the paper, it is almost impossible to remove, so I work carefully and accurately. I'm not attempting to reproduce reality, so I want to work fairly loosely."

Dickinson exhibited her artwork extensively in South African art galleries, Italy, France, the UK, and the USA. She received the Award of Excellence from the Society of Animal Artists in 2007 and was a judge for the International Watercolour Society.
