WATERCOLOUR


In its broadest sense watercolour includes liquid acrylics (pigment ink), gouache (an opaque watercolour), sumi ink, watercolour pencils and watercolour crayons. However when I use this variety of media I tend to think of the work as mixed media and reserve the term “watercolour” for transparent watercolour where white is the white of the paper, and a wet/wash  technique is used on some or all of the work. Some botanical works however I will create using a drier process but I consider these watercolour illustrations rather than emotive paintings. Again it is the fluidity and movement of pigment during the creation of the work where a lot of water is employed which I love. It is a Zen experience and “magic” happens. No work in wet technique can be created to produce the same result again so each work must be unique.
