Susan Neale Painted Trees in Mixed Media.
"After graduating with a BA in Art & Design from Harrow Art College London, my professional career was primarily concerned with illustration for publishing and advertising, specialising in figurative work. My preferred medium is watercolour, which for me captures the essence and quality of a subject through the jewel-like reflection of light and colour on paper. I am redefining my translation of a subject through the use of other complimentary mediums and textures. The manipulation of the paper surface having an on-going fascination for me."

Trevor Lingard A Loose Approach to Watercolour.
"Born in the Lancashire mill town of Accrington, in 1952, Trevor lives in the picturesque village of Sabden nestled in the historic witch country of Pendle Hill by the Ribble Valley. He is a professional artist, tutor and demonstrator of his preferred medium of watercolour. The characteristic economy of detail and the use of a limited palette awards his paintings with a sense of ambience and immediacy. He is inspired by Edward Seago and Sir William Russel Flint, and over more recent years by the renowned artists Trevor Chamberlain, John Yardley and Ken Howard. Trevor Lingards reputation is consolidating nationally, his paintings are exclusive, each one is unique, original and has the distinctive hallmark style."

Robert Hughes Snow Scene in Watercolour
"Bob is a self-taught artist and has been painting and drawing for as long as he can remember, he paints traditional subjects but specialise in portraiture. His favourite medium is oil paints but he is familiar with most other mediums including watercolour, acrylic, coloured pencils, pastel pencils, pastel, etc.
These last couple of years have seen a major change in Roberts' way of painting partially due to the limited amount of space at home. His new medium is "Digital", painting with pixels if you like, now his workstation comprises of a solid office desk, a G5 PowerMac computer, two monitors, a Wacom Intuos graphics tablet and an A4 printer with a facility to print directly onto printable CDs or DVDs.
Does all this new technology mean that he has given up on the traditional mediums altogether? Not on your life, if anything it has given him more power to express himself. When he is teaching he still use traditional mediums such as watercolour, pastel pencils, pastels, pencil etc, after all, what is art? ...it's creating images using any material you can lay your hands on, isn't it...?"

"Nigel was born in Doncaster in 1952, He has an extensive background in the Arts field, including a BA in Fine Art Painting and Drawing and was formerly the Head of Art & Design at Benton Park School in Leeds. He has worked with a wide range of different media and techniques but has always maintained his belief in the importance of drawing both within his own work and his teaching of Art and Design. Nigel believes that anyone can learn to draw and paint given the proper tuition. It is more to do with careful observation and a basic understanding of technique rather than just natural talent."

Jim Patteson (Two Rivers Paper) Handmade Watercolour Paper
"Two Rivers was formed in 1976 and has been run and located at Pitt Mill, Somerset, UK since 1990. It's one of a handful of commercial handmills still operating in Europe. The owner/manager is Jim Patterson, a fourth generation paper maker who has spent his entire working life in the paper industry, in larger mills both in England and abroad, including Wansborough Paper Company in Watchet.
The mill is over 400 years old and still retains much of the ancient wooden milling machinery. It's been restored over the last 15 years to a working water-powered traditional paper mill, using a 100 year old metal wheel from Wales and an 1841 Hollander Rag-Breaker. The wheel itself is a 10 ft overshot wheel weighing two and a half tons and standing eleven foot high. In combination with the rag breaker, Two Rivers will be the only place in the UK where water power is used to make paper from old rags.
The largest output at Two Rivers is of the famous TR and DeNimes handmade artists paper. This is the paper of choice for many of the country's finest artists. Two Rivers has a unique random surface texture unlike the mechanically even weave of most other branded papers. This also means that there is not a right or wrong side as both sides are identical. It is incredibly hard sized, allowing the painter the luxury of pushing paint around for much longer than with more absorbent artist’s papers. Because the paint is not drawn into the paper the pigment dries to a sharp and brilliant finish. The inclusion of linen in its make-up results in an unusually tough surface which will resist much lifting out, scrubbing and re-working. As well as watercolour, our papers are used for other media including pastels, oils, printmaking, photographic processes and many types of mixed media."

Nick Summerbell Subjects in Nature - Chinese Brush
"Nick's interest in Oriental Art really began when he spent two years in Hong Kong in 1953. He had quite a collection of Chinese artefacts that had taken some time to collect but was unable to get them home. Years later he gained and A and O level in Western art and was inspired to go back to his first love Chinese Art.
The beautiful handmade paper, organic pigments and wonderful flexible brushes all contribute to the sensuousness of the art from. The use of space is an essential element of the composition allowing the viewers imagination to grow and move through the scene. This creates a sense of energy for the viewers, yet still maintaining a feeling of serenity. It is careful but relaxed work, but it does require a reasonable co-ordination of hand and eye. Once you appreciate this you can come to terms with the spirit of the subject and you really feel part of the scene."
