Landscape watercolourist

Clive Wilson is a life-long landscape watercolourist.

The effects of atmosphere, temperature and light are my special interest, particularly back-lit subjects using rich colour and interesting reflected lights in the shadows to make the picture sing. To many people, pure watercolour is the most beautiful and expressive of painting media – translucent (as opposed to the covering quality of gouache and acrylics – we don’t all have to try to imitate oil painting…), infinitely subtle, luminous… Perfect for capturing the fleeting qualities of atmosphere, temperature and light.
