Watercolour on paper
38,5 x 28,5 cm
Over the last two years, Richard Wathen started making watercolour portraits – sketches, as it were, for more refined portraits in oil. These meditative portraits, combining an expressive brushstroke with a typically saturated colour palette, quickly lost their status as a sketch and became a new series within Wathen’s painterly practice.
After a successful collaboration last year, artlead once again invited Richard Wathen to create a series of unique watercolour portraits. This is a second chance for those who were too late then, or like to put together a diptych.
