Ontario Art Gallery, Toronto Holds Exhibition“Watercolors of Britain. From Joseph William Turner to Helen Beatrix Potter

Watercolor is an affordable, inexpensive, but surprisingly sophisticated art technique. To create a watercolor paint, dry pigment is diluted in water mixed with a binder and brushed on paper. British artists have achieved amazing results in the art of watercolor. From the 1780s to today, this technique has been the most widely used for creating atmospheric British rural and urban landscapes.
