On Wednesday 29 April we spent a day on location at St Cuthberts Mill in Somerset with watercolour artists Danny Markey and Lucy Willis.
Danny Markey is a previous judge and prize winner of the Sunday Times Watercolour Competition and Lucy Willis has recently been announced as one of the judges for the upcoming 2015 competition.
Situated in the ancient Cathedral City of Wells, St Cuthberts Mill has specialised in the paper manufacturing of high quality artists papers since the 1700s. During their visit Danny Markey and Lucy Willis were able to try out the different watercolour papers (Bockingford, Saunders Waterford, and Millford) painting ‘en plein air’ with the picturesque Victorian paper mill as their subject.
We will soon be sharing some short films made with the artists on the day.
