Blend 

Blend Art Exhibition

'Blend' is an informal group of seven enthusiastic watercolour artists that, like a blend of colours, is a mix of artists and styles. They are continually inspired and encouraged to embrace the spontaneous quality of watercolour. No other medium can match its light and glow. The magic of transparent colours dancing on white paper … a unique luminosity, that is the gift of watercolour.

As a group, they share ideas, techniques, encouragement, critiques, support and good company. Three years in, and still meeting each week. Welcome to their exhibition and the world of watercolour.
