Watercolour is an exhibition showing at The Tate in London until August. From curator Alison Smith:
Our show aims to reveal the extraordinary and varied, if uneven history of watercolour through the centuries. Historically, the practice of watercolour has often been seen as a means to an end – done for practical purposes, such as botanical illustration, topographical depiction or as designs. However, as it evolved, it became a medium in its own right, and watercolours were soon prized for their colours, fluidity and translucent qualities.
Sometimes I forget to go to museums. I love art. I want to see this!

Oh hey…maybe we will have to check this out while we’re over there! Looks amazing!
i just took up watercolors again, and now I’m devouring all the pictures of watercolors I can get my hands on! Desperately wish I could make it to this exhibit!
Gosh, this looks amazing! I love the Tate so so much!
Going to London in early summer. Will have to check it out. It’s been years since I went to the Tate. Lovely museum.
I’ve seen the show, and you would ADORE it, Chelsea… I think you should start plotting a London trip, and I’ll give you my top tips. (I’m longing to see Portland, so maybe we should do a life swap!) Ha! x
