By Sue Scott
The Rochdale Canal runs from the Bridgewater Canal at Castlefield Junction in Manchester to the Calder & Hebble Navigation at Sowerby Bridge. The Ashton Canal joins the Rochdale Canal at Ducie Street Junction in east Manchester. In 1804, the Rochdale became the first of three trans-Pennine canals to be fully opened - perhaps due to the choice of a route over the top of the Pennines, avoiding the problems with tunnel construction that had bedevilled the other two waterways.
Sue is a Manchester based landscape artist who creates urban and rural paintings in acrylics. Sue spent many years living in rural Scotland but visiting Manchester regularly she became interested in the architectural contrasts, materials and styles of the city and began painting it when she returned to live there in 2011. Since then, Sue has been working full time developing her painting style and techniques.
Rural Landscapes, in particular the Lake District have featured more recently in Sue’s work, providing a break from her urban surroundings. Open space, mountains, trees and lakes provide subject for these paintings. Sue’s current work is dominated by sharp lines and bold colours which are an amalgamation of the unique hues and colour palette which she observes in each location.
