I was born in 1964 and have since 1998 spent my time as a Security Officer which can sometimes get a bit boring, so I decided to start learning to paint with watercolours which I thought would be the easiest, how wrong was I?
A popular misconception, but to those who know, painting in watercolours is hard because if you make a mistake you can't simply cover it over like you can with oils or acrylics, you have to think backwards because you have to start with the lightest colours to the darkest.
Some art books that I have read talk about rules for this & rules for that, WHY? As far as I am concerned there are no rules of how a painting should be done, look at Salvador Dali or Pablo Picasso for instance, so as long as I am happy and the customer is happy with the results who is to say that the way it was done is wrong?
So check out the galleries and see what you think!
I showed in the 39th LAA exhibition which ran until the 23rd of May 2009 and was awarded the D. McKINNON trophy as my drawing of Stephanie & Caitlin was commended.
