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.
