David Webb

Watercolour is my medium of choice. I love its fluid nature and the way it can be pushed around and mixed on the paper to create transparent washes. To maintain that transparency, I endeavour to complete my paintings in no more than three washes, building up the layers from light to dark, whether I’m painting animals, boats, landscapes, flowers or still life.

Demonstration plays a big part in my teaching. As it is quick to work with, I often find that the easiest way to show a watercolour technique is to actually do it in front of my students.

The mistakes and problems commonly associated with watercolour are all things that I’ve had to overcome, and so it is quite satisfying to be able help a student to overcome their frustration and enable them to enjoy the medium.
