This month I am posting watercolour portraits, although many are partial figures.It is possible some may not be watercolour so any corrections are welcome. This also applies to the artists names. I make no apologies in leaning towards an impressionistic approach, although there are examples of more detailed works here. Some I like a lot more than others but as usual I’m trying to show the wide range that is possible with watercolour. This is just a sample of what is out there.
Another of these amazing Chinese artists
Jack London (?)
Not sure if this is correct. Maybe the subject is JL Apparently this is Robert Wade . That surprises me as it isn’t typical RW. Thanks to Greg.
Another from Annette Smith
I can see Charles Reid in this and the one above.
Lars eje Larsson
This is very abstract . which seems to be the case with his figure and portrait work. His other stuff is very different with bold colours. I love his work but the above may not appeal to many.
This is lovely but I cannot find the artists name Might be Atsushi Matsubayashi
Digital watercolour by Vitaly Shchukin (thanks to Greg)
Slawa Prischedko. One half of the Prischedkos. A wonderful artist. They have been doing workshops at East Devon Arts at Sidmouth on the South Coast of England for the last two years.
The superb Stephie Butler. This is another example of her use of the new liquid charcoal allied with one or two watercolours. I’ve now bought a tube but haven’t yet tried it. This is very different to her normal style (which is excellent) and I like both very much.
One of the premier USA artists in watercolour portraits
This Scottish lady is a wonderful artist
“Robert Wade’ by Chien Chung -Wei
This is a great painting by the fabulous CCW
A very bold and colourful work typical of this artist
The late Charles Reid A typical demo of which I saw about thirty in my several workshops with him although this wasn’t one.
Another marvellous American/Asian artist
I have been friends with Gerard for a few years now. His work has expanded greatly and here (I think) he was having fun
Chien Chung -Wei
I love this for its minimalist approach
Not familiar with the artist.
This Bangalore artist is brilliant
Rick Huang-Huang hua Zhao
Another from Slawa Prischedko
The fine American artist
Stan produces fabulous work including a lot of portraits
A new artist to me
