About The Artist
I'm Ray Mcsharry from Ilford, London U.K. I've enjoyed sketching since childhood, and took up watercolour painting after becoming fascinated by paintings I saw on display at a gallery many years ago. I was struck by how the artist was able to create light gleaming through dark clouds to shine across the sea below
I particularly enjoy watercolour for the variety of effects that can be achieved, from sharp shadows on a sunlit day, to the misty atmosphere of a rainy day, as well as for its speed, portability and unpredictability which makes it exciting and not at all relaxing as many people imagine. It's easy to go wrong, but there's always the other side of the paper for a second chance.
My style and subject matter constantly change and evolve. At the moment I am painting street scenes. I will be posting my latest work here regularly, so please visit again soon.
I am also happy to help with advice on materials and technique so don't hesitate to contact me.
