About this product
- DescriptionA passionate believer in maintaining the pure English watercolour tradition, James Fletcher-Watson has done more than follow in the footsteps of the great masters he most admired, such as Cotman, Bonington and de Wint, he has earned a place alongside them. His fresh approach to every landscape, which comes from careful observation and a perfect balance of light, tone and colour, shines through every one of his paintings.His ability to create the perfect composition, whether he was painting a rain storm in the Scottish Highlands or a bustling Italian market place, is the enduring hallmark of his work. He found inspiration wherever he travelled, and enjoyed painting in many parts of the U.K. His favourite spots included the dramatic mountain landscapes of Cumbria and Scotland. But he was just as comfortable painting the vast skies of North Norfolk or gentler river scenes in his beloved Cotswolds. He was frequently invited to lecture and teach painting overseas, as far afield as America and Australia, as well as in Europe (most tably to Italy and Majorca). The result of so much travel is a wonderful legacy of masterpieces from all over the world.
