Simplicity in itself – watercolour is simple. The laying of washes, working from light to dark generally, but the truth is, we make it difficult. I noticed in my class the other day that there was a lot of improvement being made. Those particular artists were beginning to make fresh looking washes that weren’t overworked and they were allowing the pigments to settle into the paper without disturbance. (That is: not fiddling) And they achieved sparkle and glow. It was tremendous.
