Video of Sunday Times Watercolour Competition 2017

When I reviewed the exhibition in my post 10 Best Paintings in the Sunday Times Watercolour Exhibition I said I'd be posting my video of the exhibition at the weekend. However I was rather more ill than I'd realised.....

Still from the video
Hence I'm a bit remiss, not to mention late, in posting this video of the Sunday Times Watercolour Competition 2017.

It's a walk around the exhibition while it was on display at the Mall Galleries in September. Not the smoothest of videos but I was suffering from a rather bad case of laryngitis, was walking with my stick and wasn't too bright for the next few days.

I find I need to be feeling a bit brighter to process a video and publish it - hence the delay.

For those wondering about the media used by artists selected for the competition, you can find below the "watercolour" media used for the paintings in the competition.  Less than half the paintings are traditional watercolour paint only.
