"TateShots" video of Callum Innes in his Edinburgh studio...
Innes demonstrates how he uses watercolor to paint reductively and subtractively. I've always shied away from this medium; for one thing, it doesn't have physicality, tactility, flow, scent or visual weight of oils and encaustics- my preferred media. However, I appreciate watercolor for what it is but especially for its luminosity.
The thing is, I like the idea of having a "side" body of works on paper- I did a few gouache series a couple of years ago. More recently I experimented with collage but that proved somewhat unfulfilling, although I wasn't sure why. Perhaps it's time to try the age-old medium of watercolor. Or watercolor collage. Endless possibilities.
