Sue Stitt

The advances in the digital world have transformed how I approach illustration and I relish the freedom it has given me. Inspired by David Hockney on his iPad and repeatedly 'Googling' how to use it, I have used the iPad to build up and produce most of my current pictures.

I started as a freelance illustrator after studying at Southampton Art College for four years. I then worked both full and part time (fitting around my family of three children and husband) for mainly London publishers, predominantly, Usborne publishing. My medium then was concentrated watercolours which faded badly in the light, but were ideal for publishing. The Giclee printing on archival matt paper that I now use, manages to retain the clarity and brightness that I strived for but should be far more reliable over many years.

No Man's Lands Fort 
Touch and go off Ryde Sands as yachts tack along the contours against the tide in the final dash to the Cowes finish line. 
Hurst Narrows 
Avoiding the notorious 'Trap' off Hurst spit, yachts funnel through the frequently turbulent and constricted waters of Hurst Narrows, close tacking for the optimum position on to the run to the Needles.HRH Harry can be seen crewing on Invictus.
The Needles
SOLD OUT         
Round the Island
Scooter Rally 
Since 1980, up to seven thousand dedicated scooter riders have made the annual August Bank Holiday pilgrimage to the Isle of Wight, focusing on Ryde. It makes a fantastic sight and is one of the world's largest gatherings of vintage and modern scooters.          
The hectic 'toing and froing' of preparing, sailing and returning dinghies during the Sail Training Weeks, create a vibrant, buoyant scene in the harbour.
Cowes RYS
Organised chaos, a 'General Recall' with the classic XOD's....
I wanted to recreate the liveliness of the ancient harbour town of Yarmouth, the old buildings and pier, the bustling harbour and the numerous activities on and off the water.
Cowes (Norris Nadgers!)
Strengthening tides, uneven depths and fickle winds bait the crews during the Tuesday night racing off Norris Castle.
Bramble Bank
Cricket in the middle of the Solent!! Yes, at a certain time of year the tide drops low enough for the sandbanks to show for a short time and a flotilla of yachts take everyone out to play or watch then high tail it back to the yachts as the tide comes back in!!
St Catherines Lighthouse
Situated on the most southerly point of the Island it guides seafarers around the dangerous over falls and rugged coastline. A half way point in the annual Round the Island race.
The harbour and sailing club full of life, colour and action.
Quay Rocks - Seaview II
On a glorious mid-summers day with the tide up, it’s hard to beat such a quintessential Island scene in this Edwardian Seaside village.
Seaview Regatta
A great regatta with a long history. Families compete hard to win in all categories but the emphasis is always on family fun and the celebration of summer.
Bembridge Lifeboat Station
A majestic building surrounded with trees down to the shoreline. It is the base of many a life saving launch. A great place to walk the dog and have a moments reflection time..
