Watercolours





These are a few of my small watercolours I've done this year.
Compared to my oil paintings they have a more quiet, intimate quality which I really like.They operate in a different way; whereas the paintings are perhaps more immediate, these have a subtle presence which makes you come closer yet might push you away at the same time. I think this quietness can make them look 'pretty' or something (watercolours by their very nature have a really pretty quality I believe anyways) and I like to undermine this with my subject matter which is often dead animals, disembodied heads and skulls.
