In this video, Jane Betteridge’s experimental methods in watercolour mix bold, strong colour with fluid movement, creating beautifully lively art works that capture the fun and excitement of the medium like no other.
In the early stages of the video, she will create how to master the perfect vibrant wet-in-wet background, placing colour in certain spots to mix and create beautiful and surprising mixes. These backgrounds become the base of many of Jane’s works, and the main project here is no exception. In the later stages, she will create a lively and exciting dandelion clock using watercolour, inks, granulation mediums and delicate brush strokes to inspire you to create your own wonderful and experimental unleashed watercolours.
Jane is an artist and tutor whose interest in painting started from a young age, later developing her skills as a keen hobby artist, partaking in local watercolour classes. She later gained A-level and City and Guilds certificates in art before starting her career as an art tutor.
She frequently displays her work at exhibitions, and holds her own annual solo exhibition, where she has in excess of 80 paintings on display. In 2009, Jane was delighted to be invited to take the role of resident artist at the BBC Gardeners World Live event, at the NEC in Birmingham, where she painted a section of an award winning gardens each day.
