Living in the South Island of New Zealand I am inspired to paint the landscape. This is currently very out of vogue with those enthralled in the chic concepts of cutting-edge art who revel in intangible installations, flickering screens and obscure smears, substanciated by screeds of text explaining some incomprehensable concept they have about their "work"..... Recently I visited David Hockney's "A Bigger Exhibition" at the de Young Museum, San Francisco, and saw he had been enjoying the medium of water colour.... it can be used in such a very sensitive, flexible and expressive way.
Most of my water colours are painted on 200 lb Whatman or Arches rough 100% cotton rag paper. Pigments, I mainly use the Italian-made Maimeri sellection, a few Art Spectrum, and Windsor and Newton watercolour tube paints.
The paintings are matted using a cotton rag museum board and framed with a variety of mouldings. I courier unframed works worldwide free of charge. Contact me about shipping framed works within NZ: firstname.lastname@example.org.
