Dragon - Watercolour on Synthetic Paper [Level 1]

Online course by Artist Colleen Gray via Zoom. Buy tickets/more info via Eventbrite.

Kwey kwey! Hello!

That you’ve come here to view my work, means the world to me. I hope you enjoy what you see here. I work with several mediums in my creation process, all dictated by mood, moon and muse.

My primary work is done in ground mineral watercolour on synthetic paper. It's a fascinating journey into the unpredictable nature of earth minerals and water. I'm often in awe of the simple power of the interactions beneath my brush and have whiled away many hours without looking at the clock once.

When I want a different medium from the synthetic paper, I enjoy painting iconic historical plains scenes on Arches coldpress watercolour paper.

​The fact that I am using water and minerals on the surface of an oil based paper is not lost on me; in fact, I enjoy the irony of it. Oil and water are not supposed to work well together...unless of course, you’re an artist.
