For details of what you can enter and how to enter see:
- my earlier post The Sunday Times Watercolour Competition 2015 - Call for Entries which walks you through the process and what type of work is eligible for the competition
- or the new Sunday Times Watercolour Competition "website". This is not the best designed website for art competitions that I've seen. For example it lacks two categories on the top line for "How to enter" and "Information for artists"!

A new blog for the Sunday Times Watercolour Competition
In a lot of ways, although the ST Watercolour Comp Twitter account (@WatercolourComp) describes the new site as a website
We have a new website! http://t.co/nHLOu6mPDq for details about the competition and tutorials on 'how to paint a winning watercolour'.— ST Watercolour Comp (@WatercolourComp) June 6, 2015
it would actually be more accurate to call the new site a blog rather than a website.
It has some posts with videos which make for interesting viewing.
Here's one of them. Lucy Willis - one of my favourite contemporary watercolour artists - demonstrates how she paints (with an extremely well used paintbox and palette) on three different watercolour papers made by St. Cuthberts Mill.
I suggest you click HD and expand to full screen - it works very well.
Now - how many of you paint your watercolours with a brush that big?
Playing with paper, with Lucy Willis from Parker Harris on Vimeo.
Using each of the St Cuthberts Mill watercolour papers in turn (Bockingford, Saunders Waterford and Millford), artist Lucy Willis explores how each reacts to different paint effects. Filmed at St Cuthberts Mill in Somerset.
Incidentally one of the posts also announces the tour venues (after the exhibition at the Mall Galleries) which are:
- Castle Fine Art in Birmingham from 10 – 18 October 2015 - which will be the very first time the exhibition has come to Birmingham
- Guildford House Gallery in Guildford from 21 November 2015 – 2 January 2016 (for the 3rd year running).
PS. Last week took it out of me - hence the break from blogging while I do a bit of emotional rehab! There will be another post about the RA Summer Exhibition - either later today or tomorrow.
