Rob Ellis


I painted my first watercolour in 2017 so everything is still very new to me. I don’t limit myself to a particular genre and enjoy setting myself challenges to paint what appear to be difficult subjects with a view to working out my own ways of doing things – no doubt with considerable influence from other painters’ work. I don’t feel comfortable ceding too much control to paint and water so you will observe that my images are fairly literal representations of what I see. I always work from my own photographs where possible and I only use watercolour and masking fluid for my paintings.
