This morning I spent a couple of hours at a painting demonstration by the talented watercolour artist Matt Forster. Matt demonstrated some simple but essential techniques. It was fascinating to watch a master at work (over 10K hrs + talent = master), and if I learnt nothing else, it was deciding when to stop. Keep the colours fresh, let the light show through and let the pigment remain vibrant. I can recommend these demonstrations to anyone who has an interest in watercolour. Matt's web site is mjforster.com, through which you can buy his book and see examples of work.
Earlier this summer I entered six paintings into the Bury Art Festival. Tasteful art-lovers that they are, a selection of locals bought four of them. I find I sell more of my paintings to collectors in the North, not sure why that should be, anyhow, here are the six I showed.
