Bob Rudd RI: Sketchbooks


Bob Rudd RI will be showing his sketchbooks and answering questions about his work and techniques.

Bob works on white paper so it shines through the translucent watercolour.

"I try to use watercolour as strongly as I possibly can, so right from the beginning I’ll go to the part of the painting that I feel most sure about, it could be a colour I have seen in the landscape or a colour idea, and I paint it as if that is going to be in the final painting unchanged. This confident start gives me something positive to relate to. Working in the same way, passages are added to area by area until most of the painting is covered. Some areas remain unaltered, whilst others are modified many times and a colour scheme emerges." - Bob speaking to Cass Art last year.
