“Translucence” showcases the work of five watercolourists who have the talent to create magnificent paintings using this notoriously challenging medium. Transparent watercolour can be soft and subtle, but equally strong in its suggestion, which allows the artist great scope when it is used skillfully.
Each painter has their own approach and therefore results.
James McKay’s implied details and
Dawn Lewis’ softly mesmerizing scenes.
John McVeigh-Brown’s rhythmical landscapes;
James Fearnley’s intriguing layers of wash;
Tony Lewis’ mastery of light;
These are artists who respect the possibilities of watercolor and know how to use it to its fullest potential.
