Turner Watercolour 2013 Spring Contest Gallery of Winners
1st Place: 'Peaceful Water Garden' by Kimberly Wakeman First Place Winner
"Peaceful Water Garden"
by Kimberly Wakeman
"I am a HUGE fan of Turner Watercolors because of their brilliant color hues, smooth blending with the water on the paper, and super mix-ability which allows me to create subtle, moody watercolor scapes, or bolder brighter watercolor scenes. You will be SO pleased with the Turner Watercolor range! I am hooked!"
2nd Place: 'Out of It' by Marcel Franquelin Second Place Winner
"Out of It"
by Marcel Franquelin
"I draw in graphite, charcoal, soft pastel and pen and ink. I paint with oil, acrylics (airbrushed) and watercolor. I like to pick the medium best suited for my subject. Watercolor is the least forgiving medium of all; it is all about preparation, long thinking and fast acting. Because of its difficulty, it can get quite pricey and frustrating, especially when the colors do not "react" as intended, turning out to look weak, or fading away with time. Turner watercolors are reasonably priced, concentrated and lightfast; what's not to like. Watercolor work is demanding enough of the artist, having a medium of quality on your side is a must, and I definitely recommend Turner."
3rd Place: 'Southern Migration by Moonlight' by Frank Wilson Third Place Winner
"Southern Migration by Moonlight"
by Frank Wilson
"As a full time, professional artist since 1971, I have tried and experimented with many brands of gouache paint. I have found that, among them all, Turner Designer Gouache is my choice color because it is consistently superior in the dense pigment load and exact color match from tube to tube. I easily make rich, vibrant textures and broken color with a velvety finish with Turner Gouache that are often mistaken to be pastels! Turner Designer Gouache lends itself to the wide variety of application methods that I use in each of my paintings; sponging, scrubbing, knife painting, splattering, dip-pens, airbrushing, as well as the use of more traditional hog bristle, camel hair and sable brushes. The realism I achieve is made easier because I know my paints are consistent from batch to batch and I can depend on the full color saturation of Turner Designer Gouache to achieve very deep to very delicate passages of color, and heavy, rich textures. Even the engineering of the tubes is superior to other brands resulting ease of use and less color loss! I heartily recommend Turner Gouache paints to my gouache workshop participants."
