At one level watercolour painting is the most amateur of art forms. If you go around local art group exhibitions you will find time painting after painting made with watercolour. However the idea that ‘watercolour’ should be an the preserve of the amateur is, of course, nonsense. Most of the great artists over the centuries have a catalogue of watercolour paintings and some have made the medium their own.
So into this wonderful swirl of of paintings I have decided to dip my toes. Anyone who has spent anytime on YouTube know that there are countless video’s showing you how to make this type or that type of watercolour painting. As usual I have decided to ignore them and try to muddle through. These are two of my first efforts.
