I am Tim Wilmot, based in Bristol UK and I’m a 100% watercolour artist.

So I’ve painted on and off all my life.  I love watercolour.   Most people say it’s the most difficult painting medium to use – after all if you make a mistake, that’s it.  Do the same in oils, and you can paint over it.  So it’s the challenge I think with watercolour to pull a painting off, but also it’s about some of the unique things you can do with watercolour that is difficult or impossible with say oils – e.g. try and do what they call ‘wet in wet’ in oils!  I also love the spontaneity of  watercolour and the speed at which you can work, often being able to complete a painting in under 2 hours.  Also the freshness you can get with watercolour, the attempt to make one brush stroke work just right and it communicates exactly what I want.

I have painted more actively since about 2009 and try and do about 4-3 paintings a week.  As regards subjects to paint, I love doing landscapes and seascapes.  Pretty much a scene anywhere in the world as long as there is some strong light.  Watercolour loves strong light, areas of high contrast, and warm tones up against cool tones.  And ‘contre jour’ as they say – painting into the sun.  I try to get out and about as much as I can to paint, but most of the time I’m indoors (well when you’re in the UK you don’t always have predictable weather), in my studio and painting from a photo.

I sell my paintings worldwide, have had many paintings into exhibitions mainly in the UK, and have won a few local competitions.  I also run a few workshops in the UK and Europe.  For those people who can’t travel, I offer online workshops (we paint in an interactive way over the web at a time to suit you), normally on a one-to-one basis covering any subject you want.  I have a fairly active YouTube Channel with nearly 50,000 subscribers and new videos being posted every few weeks.
