Watercolour is a beautiful, transparent colour paint medium that reflects the light of the page and can create expression, atmosphere and unique sensitivity to enhance an image in many and varied ways.
Watercolour can be used as a tight, controlled medium, or a loose, spontaneous and abstract medium or as a wash or an underpainting. It is a versatile paint and and can be used in many and varied ways using many and varied techniques.
