Watercolour Painting


Having spent most of his early years drawing in pencil and charcoal, Stephen decided to specialise in watercolours. However, like everyone else on the planet, he found it difficult and frustrating.


He embarked on a long road of self learning and eventually gained an extensive understanding of the watercolour medium and developed his own unique style. Stephen soon realised that his early frustrations with watercolours were shared by countless leisure artists all over the country.

So much so that he set up as a teacher, runs courses and workshops, demonstrates at art societies and has written his own tuition book entitled “The watercolour enigma – Science of the medium”.

Stephen's own painting style is recognisable. In the same way a photographer might create a soft background and sharp foreground, he attempts to use the watercolour medium to reproduce this effect.

Along with diminished background tones and focal points, an incredible sense of depth is created, something which Stephen believes is vital in a painting.
