Thanks for all the many hundreds of comments on the Watercolour blog so far. There has been a remarkable response from you - so thank you for taking the time to give us your thoughts.
It has been fascinating to read what you have liked, what you would like to see more of, and also what you haven’t liked. Several of you have said that there were some wonderful surprises, such as discovering the work of Edward Burra (one of you thought that Burra’s work reminded you of Banksy!).
Others pointed out how contemporary some of the works appeared, in particular, John Dunstall’s A Pollard Oak near West Hampnett Place, Chichester c.1660. Some of you said that you would like to have seen more contemporary watercolours in the exhibition, while others wished to see more Turner. Such is the broad appeal of the medium.
It was nice, also, to read that there were those of you who brought your children, and noted that the visit inspired them to try out watercolours at home. From early beginnings…
What I would like to know is - what is your favourite work in the exhibition and why? I look forward to hearing from you.
