  • Engaging painting, Johan. Great rendering of Patrick’s exercise. Love how your perspective in the painting walks the viewer down the street and I like your use shadow on the buildings.

    Hi Kate,

    Welcome to the forum – hope you enjoy your time here. So many great things on the site to explore – love the video section.


  • Patrick, well said – thanks. I’m all for stretching myself – I’ll have a think about it after Thanksgiving is over (tomorrow). My expectations were always very high where my painting was concerned. I’m hoping to let go of that a bit. Starting back after such a long hiatus is really an opportunity to see it all anew. Release some of the “drive &…[Read more]

Haven’t quite got all the nuances of the site just yet, though. I am both excited and apprehensive about the Watercolour Challenge – haven’t picked up a brush in 5 years! Painting…[Read more]

  • Thanks for the welcome, Martin. At present, I’m blessed to live in mountains of California after 20 years in New Mexico. Plenty of painting inspiration here. Having the home re-roofed currently because El Nino is coming (the pounding is doing my head in!), so no painting at present. . . Looking forward to joining in the community when I get…[Read more]

  • I decided to join Pure Watercolour after seeing some of Patrick’s online videos. I have been painting since childhood – my first love has always been watercolour. Although mostly self taught, I have been fortunate to attend a number of classes with some amazing artists who were great teachers. I used to plein air paint once or twice a month with a…[Read more]
