rebecca barnard watercolours

Watercolour sketches painted either in situ or from memory or imagination, help when creating work back in the studio.  They make a fresh basis from which to start a composition, or may simply help with colour, or to aid memory for atmosphere and mood.  Many of them stand well as works on their own.  Others translate better into larger more textured pieces.

Rebecca Barnard This is a childhood memory. Powerful impressions of exciting times stay with me as I recall waiting for the first signs of fire in the fields at night and rushing out with my pitch fork to help (help being a relative term in the farmer's eyes!).
