Today I have been trying to paint like William Russel Flint, one of the finest watercoulorists of the 20th century. ( in my opinion!). I found some old Pathe news footage of him painting in his studio and he didn’t draw first, he just went straight in with watercolour so that is how I tried today. Doing some more research I have discovered that this wasn’t always the case and he was a superb draughtsman so I think I will try drawing the figures first. His use of subtle colours in his washes is very hard to emulate but I will keep trying.
