A Serene Walk through the Woods

Watercolour: The Pouring Technique

What a wonderful way to start my winter workshops .... pouring layers of wet wash over my cold pressed paper! It was so uplifting and rewarding watching as the scene emerged in front of our eyes. The three primaries were poured one at a time to establish the light source and then the structural elements were painted, with care, to set the scene. Roland Roycraft was the artist who inspired me many years ago to try pouring. His work is absolutely beautiful. Unfortunately he died in 2011 but left a legacy of work behind for us to enjoy. He lived to a ripe old age of 93. Do look him up.
