I began working in watercolour as part of my Diploma in Art in 1996.
The course focused on the handling of the paint.
Watercolour can be very unforgiving, too many colours and you have mud, get the wet in wet mixture wrong and you get cabbage edges.
Its transparency can work against you, but for some atmospheric paintings watercolour is the perfect medium.
I found darks very hard to master in watercolour and soon moved on the Gouache and acrylics in oil style.
