Art By Ray’s Student Watercolour Painters

Ray likes to display art some by student watercolour painters. However, initially this was a problem. And this was because not everyone was keen to have their first stumbling efforts displayed to the world. You probably feel the same way.

However, time has worked wonders.  This meant that the paintings have got better and the students less shy.

Finally, we seem to be at that stage where they are keen to display their progress. Therefore you can now see some of the group members’ artwork below.

If you live in London then come along, paint a masterpiece and have it displayed here!

Or if you are far away then scan one of your watercolour paintings and email it to us.


Some of these paintings are not random entries. Most often they were painted in response to a topic that Ray was trying to teach.

If you too are a student or beginner then maybe you can learn something too. Try painting similar scenes yourself and compare results.

You can probably tease out a thread by careful reading. Go back to the blog post where they came from. then look at what Ray was trying to demonstrate. The “Better Watercolour Techniques” section may also help.
