My latest painting: 8 artists previously featured in your magazine present their latest works.
My favourite painting: Viktoria Prischedko and the watercolour she is most proud of.
Igor Sava, cityscapes and seascapes: “It is essential for me to search for the highlights first of all.”
Soon Warren, still lifes: “There is no better medium than watercolour to portray transparency.”
Alexandra Becker-Black, nudes: “I want my paintings to capture living and breathing moments seen through a lens of delicate beauty.”
Tim Saternow, cityscapes: “Dirt. Smoke. Stains. Rust. Watercolour is the perfect medium for capturing these textures.”
Portfolio Liu Yi, Portraits: “I especially like sketching different characters and the challenge of working in short sessions.”
Wei Xin Lin, Still Lifes: “I want to portray those surreal moments that transcend our mundane reality.”
Geoff Butterworth, Cityscapes: “I set out to work on a series of Rome paintings charting a day from early morning through to midnight.”
Jayson Yeoh, Semi-abstract: “Fishing boats not only possess a unique form, but also experience the same ‘life cycle’ as us humans.”
