Students and artists come together for The Big Watercolour
Members of Plymouth Watercolour Society worked with our students, students at Plymouth School of Creative Arts and members of the local community to make a giant, five metre x 15 metre watercolour celebration of Plymouth life and the city’s history, for ‘The Big Watercolour’ event.
Originally proposed by local artist Richard Sunderland, the idea grew from the realisation that all generations use watercolour but that the paintings across those generations are rarely seen together.
"Fluid, instinctive, risky and intuitive, water-based painting is contemporary and radical," said Stephen Felmingham, Programme Leader on our BA (Hons) Painting Drawing & Printmaking programme.
"This project aimed to re-address its relevance in art practice.”
This multi-generational exhibition will now stay in situ in Plymouth School of Creative Arts’ building, The Red House, in Millbay, to inspire and promote art in the city and across the generations, bringing a new vision to watercolour painting.
