Watercolour Paintings 46

Here are the latest batch to start off September. As usual they are a mixture to show the variety and versatility of watercolour with a little personal bias towards artists I  particularly like.

The wonderful Shirley Trevena. I have her first book and video, but to try and emulate her is not for the faint hearted!

Edo Hannema - superb landscapes

Janet Rogers - The excellent American artist 

Sir William Russel Flint - a legendary artist from the earlier era

Virgil Akins

Virgil has succeeded in developing his own unique style.

John Singer Sarjeant - enough said!

Jonathan Kwegyir  Aggrey

Bev Jozwiak.

The ever creative Bev is doing some painting on Yupo paper

Trevor Lingard

Robert Ferguson

Jonathan Kwegyir Aggrey - I should have known!!!

Gerard Hendriks - one of a series of boat paintings

Karl Martens.
I recently came across this interesting artists who specialises in birds. His paintings are actually quite large.

Yuko Nagayama.

Unusual subject of a portrait for Yuko but brilliant as usual. Eat your heart out Ward!

Another from Shirley Trevena

Janine Gallizia.

Her paintings have this amazing ethereal look. I believe she's one of the founders of "The Art of Watercolour' magazine.

Jean Haines

Very loose - maybe just a tad too loose - only my opinion.

Joseph Zbukvic  - the well-known Australian Artist.

That's it folks. Hope you like them.

I'm enjoying and admiring all the watercolor paintings you have posted, along with your own work. I've only started on this magical medium about a year ago and enjoy speculating which colors were used, how they were mixed, etc. One pigment that is frequently overlooked is Winsor/Newton's Potters Pink PR233, but in this latest batch of watercolor paintings, I can see where it might have been be useful. On its own it is a very weak pigment. However, PP is magical as a mixer when it comes to old buildings and, of course, sandy beaches and a real helper for skin tones. Give it a try by mixing it with the single pigment, transparent Daniel Smith colors you may have on your palette. Potters Pink was a game changer for me and I hope you may find it useful, as well. I've enjoyed following along with your WC journey, Peter.

Thanks for comments Mary. I have Potters Pink by Winsor & Newton but found it on the weak side. I'll have to have another look at it.
