SAA WATERCOLOUR AMBASSADOR
I'm delighted and honored to be chosen to be an ambassador for The Society for All Artists www.saa.co.uk and to represent their range of Watercolour Paints. I have been a PA ( professional associate tutor) for the SAA for about 8 years now. They produced my tree painting video tip for me and gave me a place in their publication 101 painting tips. I'ts a pleasure to continue to work closely with them.
Using decent equipment is so important when you are learning to paint with Watercolour. There are so many inferior products on the market which are a waste of money. Due to the technical aspect of watercolour painting its best to use good paints and paper ..otherwise mastering the processes can become even more challenging, I think lots of people are put off early because they have the wrong gear...I hate painting of cheap paper and paints..there is just no comparison with the true artist materials. The SAA Watercolour paints are Artist quality, however they are available at a very competitive price from their online shop. These paints are not available in shops.
They have a wonderful choice of materials and papers such as the Sanders & Waterford range, I'm a big fan of their Cotton rich paper..I love the rough surface. I also recommend the SAA Bockingford as a great paper to learn on, its takes a bit of punishment without falling apart.
If you are going to learn to paint seek advice before you buy...from an artist or teacher not the shop attendant in the Hypermarket's art department...they need to sell you something there and then..its their job.

I love looking into a reclaimed slate to see what mother nature has carved .
This Slate painting is definitely a one off...totally unique in the fact I could see the shape of the young Mother holding her baby in the natural ridges of the slate...you will see it too if you look at the picture.
All I did was enhance it with colour. To be mounted and framed and is for *sale.
*Now in her new home with her new baby

Art is good for you!!!
I've always promoted the benefit to our well-being that painting has.
Research has now shown that Painting is one of the best ways to preserve our brains and help with Dementia and Alzheimers. Retirement is a great time to take up painting. Lots of time to practice. I can bring art to the elderly on there sheltered living homes and care homes.
contact me for details

Cove Harbour Acrylic on slate mounted and framed at North East Art Collective
I'm delighted to have been included in this SACHET MIXTE WOMEN ARTISTS edition 4 It's lovely to read all of the biographies from the other Artists and and learn how they developed as people and Artists and what there inspiration and influences are .now available on Amazon.
In my entry I try to show a variety of my work . Different subjects and styles...my work does vary so much..but one thing o love is colour.
One thing that many will find interesting is how so many Artists haven't been to Art School and like myself are self taught.
Why not treat yourself to a copy from Amazon? I'm not plugging the book to make commission as all I get from it is the credit for my work. It's nice to get recognition after years of slog to make your name in the Art World.
I'm sure anyone who is interested in or studying art will find this an interesting and inspirational read.
Carol White MY FILM DEBUT!!!..."Art in our lives".
I was asked a short while
ago if I would like to take part in some filming for Education China, on their
TEA TIME show which was running a series about self employed people and the different types
of businesses they ran in the UK.
This was not my usual
sort of request for a ‘how to paint’ discussion, instead it was to talk about the
importance of ‘Art in or Lives’. I am a great advocate for this topic but wasn’t
sure how I would manage in-front of a camera. Anyway I shall let you decide...
Many thanks The North East Art Collective and their artists for providing such a nice film location. ..and to Walter Homes whose painting I chose to talk about. The film is live on You Tube and can be viewed from this link below
