Ruth Clayton

I am a watercolourist fascinated by nature's force and find the ocean mesmerising. I try to capture the 'energy' of the sea in my paintings and focus on the texture and patterns that the water makes. Watercolour is a great medium for my subject matter: a perfect harmony.

About My Practice

It pays to be patient with watercolour, as happy accidents can create beautiful effects. I have control but allow the paint to show me the way.
I use quick sketches, various photographs, and memory to compose my large pieces of work.

Tools & Materials

I usually work large and try not to overwork or force the way I paint, allowing the watercolour effects to appear naturally on the paper. I sometimes use a few techniques, like salt, to enhance these effects.
