Joe Francis Dowden
13½” x 23½” (34.3 cm x 59.7 cm)
One of Britain’s most exciting contemporary watercolour artists, Joe paints landscapes and seascapes which scintillate with light and colour. His tutorial books have earned him a huge following and his pictures are highly sought after. Joe’s mastery of watercolours enables him to capture the effects of light on water, from ocean waves to flowing rivers, babbling brooks and shallow puddles. His paintings of English country lanes and riverbanks dappled with sunlight capture the evocative moods of the changing seasons.
This view of Burrator Reservoir highlights the glassy, still waters and soft-focus reflections of an autumnal morning – hallmarks of this accomplished artist.
