Joanne Thomson is a watercolourist. What started as rebellion against the rules imposed by a family of oil painters has become a love affair. “Watercolour demands conversation. It will not be lectured to. Water does what it does. Pigments do what they do. I have to work with them (and sometimes gently persuading them to try something new.)” Thomson uses these conversations to create images that evoke emotional responses and create primal connections.
The Wind Blows in All Directions on St John’s Point
In 2017 the Mayne Island Conservancy was busy raising money to save Saint John’s Point from development. This painting is one that I did from sketches made on site, and proceeds from the sale of the original were donated to this cause. The Conservancy saved the Point, a magnificent stretch of Coastal Douglas Fir landscape and over 2 km of coastline.
