Singapore Watercolour Society

Singapore Watercolour Society Website
[Site last assessed on 29 Apr 06]

I love how they’ve incorporated the splash of watercolours as part of the mainpage design. The Singapore Watercolour Society (watercolour.org.sg) was founded on 18 Aug 1969 by 13 watercolour enthusiasts. Read more of their history here (the page has links to seven of the founders’ website as of this post).

Singapore Watercolour Society
The society’s stated objectives are:

  • To transfer the tradition of Singapore watercolour painting from one generation to the next.
  • To create an environment where professional watercolourists can exchange ideas and foster better relationships.
  • To support watercolourists in their adventure in experimenting new techniques and styles.
  • To promote the use of the watercolour medium in Singapore.
  • Other sections include a members page (present and past). A pity that there aren’t many artists listed with their own websites. I wonder how many of them have a blog. The website don’t give me the impression that it’s frequently updated, which again is a pity.

  1. I think it is done wet on wet. When one colour dries, the other is placed – light ones first, dark ones later.

  2. Hi,

    Wet on wet is applying paint onto wet paint. Play with paint concentration to achieve required effects through different paint density and saturation.

    When one color dries, another layer goes on top of it is called glazing but I like to call it layering.

    One more common technique used by Andrew Wyeth a lot is called dry brush. Pigment on brush with almost no water. Apply it against friction of paper surface to
    get requirement textures.

    However, techniques are secondary. True skills and knowledge come first.

    Cheers,
