I have used watercolour as my instrument all my working life – with some excursions into printmaking and ceramics.
I have always worked with the ideas that it is the gesture and the response to the found in drawing that is important – the drawing is in the distribution of space and the edge of an area of colour.What has emerged from long practice is not a simple question of technique in watercolour, but has to do with the primacy of the medium of paper – in simple terms working with watercolour covers the ground between enquiry and the search for a translation into composition or an abstraction or a statement that can have a life of its own, like a piece of music.
