Anders Andersson

I love to paint. Over the years it has been Christmas cards, T-shirts, helmets, ties, trucks, cars, adverts, book illustrations, caricatures, comicstrips. Some how I got stucked to the fascinating medium watercolour

How is it that one gets stuck on watercolour painting?
For me it's about curiosity and an exiting journey through chaos and order. The colour hue, the paper, the moisture in the brush, the individual character of each colour and your own state of mind make the watercolour so direct. You are always just a few brush strokes away from merely a flat muddy mess with no interest.

Anders Andersson. Bike.

Sometimes the colour seems to blend in a chaotic way. During the drying process the character changes with every second. Experiment by combining Ultramarine and Burnt Umber together. Sit an enjoy the drama that unfolds on the paper while this mixture dries. That’s how you get stuck on watercolour painting.
