Watercolours

Painting in watercolour is an important part of my practice.  For over 20 years I documented the sea at Aberdeen, painting from the beach in all seasons and weathers, maintaining a watercolour diary.

During 2007 I spent a short time painting in St Ives and Newlyn, enjoying first hand the source of inspiration for artists such as Alfred Wallis and Barbara Hepworth.  St Ives had a special resonance for me as Terry Frost, one of my University tutors, was also a St Ives artist. In 2008 I visited and painted in Southwold and Walberswick, destinations chosen for their connections with interesting artists and also for their art colony history. Last year I visited Staithes in NorthYorkshire, to discover the attraction to creative people.

Artist Colonies have provided inspiration to generations of artists who have found something particular to these locations that moved them aesthetically.  The scarcity of these places unites them and intrigues me to further define the reasons behind their attractiveness to so many artists.  Elements of nature including quality of light, beauty of landscape, and how they shape the character of people would I hope inspire in me a 21st century imaginative response to this historic prerogative.
