Suzy Solvery

Name: Suzy Solvery
Bio: Suzy Solvery was born in 1946 near Lyons, France, where she still resides. She is entirely self-taught through constant practice, books and literature on the subject. She paints for painting's sake, pastel for Suzy is its own reward. I say chapeau, and bonne continuation!
Media: Pastel
Subjects: Portraits, Still life, Landscape.
Style: Representational.
Navigation: This website is in French. The main menu is available at top of page, until you enter the thumbnails, when you can navigate by arrows – this is the first time I have seen tooltips attached to direction arrows. The site is hosted by one of the major players in the French telecoms industry, so the format is a standard one. I logged onto’s home page, clicked onto pages perso, chose arts from the categories on offer, chose peinture from the arts on offer, and put pastel into the search box. There were 252 results! However, a quick surf suggests that it is better to stick with known artists, and their links, to find new talent....
Gallery: Ma Galerie de Tableaux : Portraits (31 images); Nus (nudes, 16 images); Autres (others, 10 images); Animaux (animals, 9 images); Natures Mortes (Still life, 19) ; Paysages (Landscape, 8)
Image View: When a thumbnail is clicked it enlarges to give full information re dimension, medium and support. The thumbnails themselves seem ‘out of sync’ with the tables on the page (you will see what I mean if you look). As well as that the paintings are mostly presented after framing, which affects the size and clarity of the image. This is a pity as they merit closer inspection. I have chosen an unframed painting to display here. It is 1984x1636, 324 KB.
Demo: No.
Blog:/Ebay/Flickr/: No.
