Call for entries
Now that winter is upon us, let it be said that watercolour follows the rhythm of the seasons. After a summer spent outdoors enjoying plein air painting and trying to cope with the difficulties posed by the sun and wind, not forgetting summer’s many art fairs, which are often holiday destinations, watercolour has taken up its winter quarters. The coming months will very likely be devoted to studio work and periods of research and reflection. Like nature, watercolour has cycles and this may be one of the reasons why artists feel such a strong, almost visceral, connection to the medium. It is perhaps also for this reason that watercolourists from all walks of life are usually aware that they are part of an informal, worldwide community that unites them across borders and cultures. You would think that there was little in common between Prafull Sawant’s landscapes painted on the banks of the Seine and Soon Young Warren’s hyper-realistic still lifes, or between Jansen Chow’s almost abstract urban scenes and Thierry de Marichalar’s bucolic French landscapes and yet, driven by their passion for this medium, all of these artists share the belief that watercolour is the most appropriate way to express their artistic passion. Whatever their chosen subject, type of paper or brand of watercolours, these artists from all over the world (present in this issue alongside many others), forge new ties and strengthen existing bonds and contribute to developing this wonderful community. And because of the irresistible desire you feel to pick up your paints and brushes as soon as the opportunity arises, don’t forget you are part of this community too!
