Studio

Welcome to my site

Watercolours For Fun is a site where nothing is for sale, honestly!

No limited edition prints or original art. No expensive online demos. No plein air trips to exotic European destinations and no sponsors plugging their products. Everything is absolutely free here, with the usual copyright warnings of course. As a long retired graphic artist and writer I now paint and teach mainly for fun, and enjoy painting in a medium which is often frustrating but immensely satisfying.

Hence the name of my site.

Watercolours For Fun, yes, and for profit if you insist. You’re welcome to use whatever you find here to help you do better watercolours, whether you paint to sell, or do as I do – paint for fun.

Although watercolour has always been my first love since art school, I dabble  in alkyd oils and pen and ink, so you’ll find occasional posts in these mediums too.

I regret I have to close the “Comments” sections of this website owing to the amount of spam infecting it.  If you wish to contact me, click on my watercolour demos above here you will find your way to my Flickr page and my user name “PIcky Painter”.
