Watercolour 16

The watercolour books that I’m using (Matthew Palmer) are produced in association with The Society of All Artists. Looking into this group I was impressed by the benefits of joining for a nominal membership cost, so I requested an information pack to take a look at their bi-monthly magazine Paint.

Paint is a great magazine, it’s inclusive of all styles and mediums (if that’s the right word) and has step by step tutorials to encourage readers to try recreating the artwork shown. I almost certainly will be joining.

Having read some of the magazine while in the hospital waiting room I was keen to try my own version of the below image by Hazel Lale. I was attracted by the bright colours, not routinely associated with watercolours, and the apparent simplicity of the components.

A few hours later and I had produced something I was happy with and will be looking into Hazel’s work further.

Hazel’s book, Vibrant Watercolours, is one to add to my wish list.

    1. Thanks Anna, the Matthew Palmer books are excellent. I truly thought my art would be awful but the books explain everything so well. I’m pleased I took the leap and tried watercolours.
      Thank you for reading and your supportive comment.
