Janice Sugg's painting style incorporates a layering effect. Her method interleaves textures, blending color and a subjective atmosphere within her imagery. She paints using unpredictable palettes—a spectrum of color that often challenges well-worn clichés (the sky is blue, the land is green, etc.). The resulting layers are successively wiped and refined revealing a composite of underlying design—the result of colorful swathes of braided paint unfolding and enfolding the values within her palette. Indeed, her surprising use of color has become a distinctive attribute of her work.
