I just thought that I'd drop a quick note here to remind my website visitors that I also run another blog at www.robwighamwatercolours.blogspot.com. I started this other blog in response to some requests to detail how I paint my watercolours - so the blog features my methods and thoughts on painting itself. Hopefully it will appeal to those who are hobby painters or those who just have an interest in watercolour painting techniques. This blog, within my website, I use to introduce new paintings, sales or other features. I hope that, between the two blogs, everyone's wishes are catered for! But, as usual, if you'd like something else or have any comments, please just drop me a line...
By the way, the painting above is one I've not reproduced before on the website, as it is a copy, and not my own composition. You might recognise it as 'Chirk Aquaduct', by the incredible early watercolourist John Sell Cotman. It's a copy made many years ago and which I came across recently. It illustrates the point that it's perfectly OK to copy other artists' work, as long as its not for sale and you don't claim it as your own! In fact, this is how I learned to do watercolour - though these days all my compositions are my own.
