"Polka Dot Pot" - watercolour paintingwatercolour gallery

watercolour is a wonderfully magical medium to use as it has a mind of its own and often after a piece of work has dried it has changed into something really beautiful when you had thought it destined for the bin! There are so many different techniques you can learn that enhance your enjoyment of painting in watercolour, so it is always worth joining a class or having lessons as it is an amazing medium and I reckon it is so much more sophisticated and complex than oil or acrylic.

Popular in Victorian times,watercolour painting was out of fashion for many years but is now definitely on trend with artists like Damien Hurst and David Hockney helping to make it popular again.If you associate it with amateur artist groups trotting out boring landscapes ...think again!

An absolute must if you are wondering if this medium is for you is to go along to the annual Times watercolour competition held ever autumn. The talent and diversity in the entries recieved for this exhibition will suprise and inspire you...promise!
