I love the way the ram sits on the watercolour paper making a very atmospheric sky background.The textural contrasts and colour of the animal is very appealing.

Love the sharpness and details of the head in contrast to the looser style in the body. Great colours and the simplicity in this piece works really great. Well done

That is the beauty of watercolour for me, the way it can be used for such detail and yet use colours so loosely. Thank you for your knowledgeable comments Liesel x

Hi Joy, a funny circumstance, when the lady came to collect it she saw two others she liked better. So even though it didn't sell I was pleased with the outcome. Glad you like it though x

Artist Statement
for Graham Ibson
Graham IbsonI only started painting in 2010 after my retirement from the refrigeration trade. I hadn't picked up a paint brush until then and realised what I had been missing all those years. I was lucky to find a superb art teacher Carol Davidson who has taught me so much. My love is watercolour but I also tinker with acrilyic. I've been married to my lovely wife Linda for 50 years in 2018, and have two fantastic sons who all pushed me into painting. I have them to thank.
