Fabriano, Italy, 2024
I’m so proud of my entry this year, “Fishing at Nairn Harbour”, on this international platform for all watercolour artists. It was painted from the featured photo on this page. I shot it on a day out at Nairn, walking around the harbour, when a seagull landed on the railing and I got a lucky photo of him. Upon painting him, I purposely did not clarify the background of the image as I wanted the viewer to use their imagination and see what they wanted in that section. With the help of cling film, I managed to create some abstract patterns that helped enhance this vision.
You can view the painting on the Fabriano website in the link below. Even if my painting isn’t selected to physically represent Scotland in Italy, I am pleased with what I have achieved. Painting bigger is always a challenge as it sometimes dries faster than you can paint and the white paper is scary to overcome.
Feel free to browse the hundreds of other entries by may watercolour artists from around the world.
