About Joe Cartwright

I am a realist / impressionist artist. I like to paint with freely flowing watercolour paint but still like my work to represent a scene or object. Sometimes I will alter my style and technique depending on the subject matter. Some subjects seem to require more detailed and tight renditions and others a freer flowing and loose one.

I like to use a full range of brush strokes in all my work, from soft wet on wet passages through to broken edged dry brush techniques. I like my work to look interesting both from a distance as well as close up.

I only paint with artist’s quality paints, mainly using Winsor and Newton brand products. This is not to say that there aren’t any other good brands out there. But I have found that the Winsor and Newton watercolours have worked well for me so have not felt the desire to spend time experimenting with others. I use a large plastic palette which holds lots of pigment and provides big mixing areas. The large mixing areas are important as a common problem students have is not mixing enough paint before they start working on their paper.

I primarily use round watercolour brushes which spring back to a nice point when wet. However, I also use other brushes such as a fan brush and a rigger, for creating certain textural shapes.

While most of my artwork is produced in the studio a significant portion is now done plein air (outdoors). I try to get out painting at least once a week with a group of fellow artists from the Nepean Art Society of which I was President.
