Tim Wilmott, Bristol Savages- Simplifying Watercolour
I am Tim Wilmot, based in Bristol UK and I'm a semi-professional watercolour artist. I am also a member of the Bristol Savages, a Society concerned with the pursuit of the Fine Arts, Painting, Music, Poetry, other Performing Arts since 1904.
I've painted on and off all my life, and I would say almost exclusively in watercolour. I love watercolour. It's the challenge I think with watercolour to pull a painting off, but it's also about some of the unique things you can do with watercolour that are difficult or impossible with say oils - e.g. try and do what they call 'wet in wet' in oils! I also love the spontaneity of watercolour and the speed at which you can work, often being able to complete a painting in under 2 hours. Also, the freshness you can get with watercolour, the attempt to make one brush stroke work just right. As regards subjects to paint, I love doing landscapes and seascapes.
I sell my paintings worldwide, have had many paintings into exhibitions mainly in the UK, and have won a few local competitions. I also run a few workshops in the UK and Europe. For those people who can't travel, I offer online workshops
