WATERCOLOURS

 

Painting in Watercolours was mastered by British artists in the 19th century.

Whether the medium was so favoured is down to the weather or the British temperament is unknown.

But painting in Watercolours is a highly skilled discipline, using subtle colour washes to capture the mood of a scene.

The 20th century saw a much looser style in fashion.
You will notice some of the drawings are "attributed" to an artist. This is due to the fact that it is unsigned but bears close resemblance to the style of painting used by that particular artist.

Any number of accomplished artists never signed their work, especially in the early part of the 19th century.  I always buy on the strength of the work.
