The Art of Watercolour 31st issue - Artists from all over the world
The summer issue of The Art of Watercolour takes you on a colourful trip around the world of watercolour. You will meet Ramesh Jhawar and the luminous landscapes of his native India, Patricia Guzman and the moving portraits of Mexican Indians, as well as young Justyna Kisielewicz who has taken on the mission of changing the public’s eye on the medium of watercolour. You will also find in this issue our regular features, such as our ongoing Readers’ Contest and our Call for Entries, to name but two. Enjoy your summer!
MEET THE ARTISTS
Gail Sutherland: The coastline and beauty of Canada inspires her to paint and document the ever-changing landscape and record the fragility of nature.
Ramesh Jhawar: The Indian artist magically portrays his country’s atmosphere.
Justyna Kisielewicz: The young artist has taken on the mission of changing the public’s opinion of watercolour.

Patricia Guzman: Her art speaks of her environment from her perspective as a Mexican and as a woman.

Genevieve Buchanan: Free, joyful and spontaneous... these are the terms used by Genevieve Buchanan to describe her paintings.

ARTIST CHALLENGE: the subtle art of portrait painting. With Richard Tiejun Chao, Olga Kharchenko and Jenny Medved. Portraits may indeed be one of the most arduous subjects artists can tackle in watercolour. Expressing emotions and rendering the likeness of the model are indeed two of the main challenges painters have to face. We asked Jenny Medved, Richard Chao and Olga Kharchenko to share their thoughts on the question.
Readers’ competition : More laureates and more advice! Nishikant Palande, Lois Wolford, Diane Morgan and many more…

Watercolour truly is an international community, bringing together artists from the world over. It is a way to meet people and make friends. United in their belief that watercolour is the technique that best suits their artistic expression, watercolourists form a close-knit but nevertheless open community. This is what we are trying to show through this magazine, through our different features from the four corners and far reaches of the world. Whether it is Gail Sutherland and her landscapes of the Canadian coast, bathed in sunlight, the faces of the Indian peoples delicately portrayed by Patricia Guzman, the colourful animals of Renate van Dongen, or the dazzling transparencies of Harry Price or even the marked contrasts of Yaming Cai, this issue flies over all the continents, as if all these artists form a strong community. Of which you, of course, are also a part, dear reader. You have the opportunity to participate in our Readers’ Contest (which is becoming increasingly popular), to peruse our Call for Entries sections in order to apply for exhibitions and competitions (which can be found at the end of this issue), and even to plan your next artistic outings thanks to our What’s On section. If watercolour forms a large family it is first and foremost thanks to you…
So hats off to all of you!
