Dating as far back as prehistoric times, Watercolour is a medium that has been used by the Masters of the early Renaissance, pioneers of the new world to now its most popular innovative contemporary style.
Watercolour art have been in use in decorative art for centuries and have experienced several large upheavals in application and style across history. Used in everything from ancient religious effigies to modern secular landscapes, watercolour imparts a unique colouration in artwork by the mixing of a colour with an opaque pigment which imparts a chromatic intensity to a piece, making it perfect for high-light reliant dense scapes. Watercolour prints have experienced several reimagining’s, from the topographical period to the romantic revolution, contemporary nature to abstract, with its flexibility and timeless application cementing it as a mainstay of the artistic repertoire. Among the biggest proponents of the style are names such as Hilliard, Girtin, Turner and Cotman, all of who influenced its use in their own unique ways.
