Keith Hornblower - Wonderful Venice in Watercolour - £75

Keith's approach to watercolour is dynamic and spontaneous, applying paint at speed, moving and adjusting washes as he progresses.Light and shade – tonal values – are key,  using colours for dramatic effect rather than trying to reproduce them literally, thinking mainly in terms of warm and cool, and often working with a simple triad of primary or secondary colours.
