Watercolour Painting is a form of Art. Art is prevalent everywhere you turn.  It is a form of expression — a manifestation of what you believe in and how you think. Furthermore, Art is therapeutic — it allows us to escape into the refuge of our fantasy and leave the stress of the modern day world behind. Moreover, Art can be a hobby — something you attain joy from. The benefits that we can reap from engaging in the Arts is endless.

Watercolour Painting is the process of painting with pigments that are mixed with water. Because of the portability, ease of use and clean-up, watercolours are great for quick sketches. They are also often used by still life, landscape or portrait painters to create small-scale studies of complex paintings that they plan to do in a much larger scale later.

Watercolour possesses the reputation of being a difficult Art style to master. Yet, interest in Watercolour Painting has never been stronger! While it is no longer stigmatised as a mere “sketch” medium, artists are constantly pushing the boundaries of the stupendous effects Watercolour can achieve.
