Enquiry Form for Autumn Lane Watercolour
"I believe that what makes a painting in 'Art' is determined by an artist's interpretation of a particular subject and the use of specific techniques to achieve a unique solution that does justice to the artist's vision. Each painting is therefore a challenge that requires an experimental approach to achieve a convincing expression of a subject's complex shapes, textures and colour vibrancy.
I am particularly attracted to painting in watercolour, especially the use of 'wet into wet' techniques were wet paint is flooded onto a wet surface. This technique provides an endless source of effects that are determined by how different mixtures of paint interact with the water, gravity and the surface texture of the watercolour paper. To introduce even more surprising effects, I like to apply the paint either with a large brush or spatter it on with a toothbrush. Only at the later stages of the painting process detail is added to ensure that the viewer interprets the subject correctly.
Once I have started applying the paint to the paper, the artistic process consists of responding to what is happening on the paper and steering the process into a direction that will hopefully result in a painting that is fresh and interesting. The good thing about watercolour is that the paint, water and paper do most of the work, giving effects that are often beautiful and unique. For me, creating a watercolour painting is therefore more a process of 'allowing' rather than 'doing'."
