Portraits – by Emma Parrish
My primary love has always been Watercolour. It was once described to me by a very talented artist and lecturer that commanding watercolour is like riding a wild horse – your job as it’s overseer is to reign it in enough for it to do your bidding whilst allowing it enough free reign for the natural magic to shine.
That’s why I love it. It’s a symbiosis of wills. Watercolour never fails to excite and surprise me.
The individual pigments have their own personalities, their own rules, their own ways of interacting with each other on their papery platform. Its magical and beautiful and never fails to light up my eyes and heart.
