I am a Pure Technical Watercolour Artist..
My style of watercolour painting has a unique and highly technical approach, pushing the boundaries of watercolour paints, to reveal layers of colours, hues, definition and extremely detailed watercolour paintings that have a distinct 3D effect of realism, rarely seen with watercolours.
To take watercolour painting to a highly skilful level I use only 3 transparent primary colours, meaning all the layers and combination of colours on my paintings are created from just 3 colours.
These 3 primary colours are mixed in various combinations within my palettes for smaller artworks and on larger watercolour paintings the colours are layered and mixed on the watercolour paper.
All white areas of my paintings have to be considered before I paint, as I do not use white paint. All the white on my watercolour paintings are the paper.
My goals as a painter are to fully master the technical abilities of watercolour paint and to achieve this in it’s most natural state, which means I do not use paintings aids
- No ready mixed colours, to use as an approximate colour.
- No white paint, to quickly create a highlight effect.
- No black paint, to quickly define a harsh effect.
- No masking fluid, to mark off white areas.
- No mixed media, to create a quick effect.
My watercolour paintings take time and consideration, I use watercolours in their most natural state, to reflect the beauty of the natural world around us.
My watercolour paintings are Pure Technical Watercolours.
