Artist Showcase: Peter McQuillan

Peter McQuillan watercolor paintings as seen on Beautiful Hello Blog

At times, there is nothing more calming than letting you watercolor brush go.  Just paint without any expectations.  Just let that watery paint and soft brush do it’s thing.  It may look like a complete mess, and you may never wish to see it again, but the process was beautiful.

This is the feeling I get from Peter McQuillan‘s watercolor paintings, although I know that is far from his process.  It seems as if his brush just glides into these beautiful shapes and forms, using just the right color at the right time.  In reality, I know that painting a successful “lose” painting is as challenging as a realistic one.  Knowing where to stop is far more difficult that it seems!  Peter McQuillan’s watercolors are inspired by London, where he lives and works,  and by his travels.  His work allows us to “step outside the maelstrom of modern life and to look calmly at the world, to be imaginative and creative”.
