Here are the latest batch to start off May. A bumper crop. Once again a very diverse group showing the wide range of this underrated medium. As I've often said my personal preference is impressionistic and loose watercolours - even minimalist ones. That doesn't mean I don't admire the more detailed works shown here. It is simply that I have neither the skill, inclination or patience to do such detailed works. My guru Charles Reid- actually I have three - said in a workshop I attended that some people said he couldn't draw a straight line! As this just about sums me up - except with a ruler - I rest my case.
Not certain I have the correct artist here
I love this! The contrast between the colours of the bird and the grey- greens of the surrounding area - wow!
This is an amazing watercolour. Not my taste but wonderful skill and look how the red of the cherries sets off the greys.
The British Master . This is a typical Seago landscape and he did many similar ones. This type of painting isn't as popular these days but again not much detail and very powerful.
A new artist to me - love the looseness of this. Has some videos on Youtube.
Another very loose one - some think this type of painting is easy but I can assure you it isn't. I know from bitter experience. I've been trying to master it for 18 years.
The birds are the only real detail here but don't they hold it together.
A more abstract painting from Judith. I love the colours and had to include it!
The Master of portraits and much else. See his demos on Youtube.
Thats it folks. Hope you like them.
