Water colourists today experiment a lot with trickles, flicks, and splots of colour in a personal and "expressive" way. I've explored that too, but I'm often more interested in exploring the subject matter of the great English water colourists like John Sell Cotman. He and others of his period loved water and atmosphere as a subject - the gentle gradations of atmospheric perspective, the moulding with soft and hard edges of land forms, the magic of clear transparent washes of colour often applied with a sequence of layering where one colour reveals its richness by shining through the layer above. Watercolour is also for me a way of fishing out the finer points of a land, sea, or townscape on a basis of good compositional drawing.
