In preparation for her watercolour demonstration at the Mall Galleries, Janet Darley has produced a selection of sketches and preliminary paintings on Saunders Waterford HP High White 425gsm paper. This is a 100% cotton paper with a gelatine surface sizing, mould made at St Cuthberts Mill in the South West of England. Here Janet has used the new improved HP paper, which has a wonderfully smooth surface.
Shortlisted for this year’s Sunday Times Watercolour Competition, Janet creates striking compositions by overlaying watercolour and gouache – a process which she’ll be exploring in her upcoming demonstration.
You can see Janet Darley’s painting Elmley Marshes, Sheppey in The Sunday Times Watercolour Competition exhibition at the Mall Galleries, London (19 – 24 September 2016).
Janet’s demonstration, Layering Watercolour, will take place on Tuesday 20 September 11am – 4pm and promises to offer an insight into her unique creative practice.
