Charles Evans Uses The New Limited Edition Professional Watercolours:
Charles Evans is a professional artist and a demonstrator for Winsor & Newton. This is what Charles has to say about the New Limited Edition Professional Watercolours:
‘The strength of pigment and clarity of colour is just amazing. Why they named them Desert colours I don’t know. Personally I would have called them the Vibrance Range because they truly are. Don’t be fooled by the names because they are not just for people who paint deserts as I have shown in this painting. The highlands of Scotland could hardly be classed as a desert!’
