Artist Biography

Grahame Booth paints only in watercolour and his success in the medium is reflected in the numerous national and international exhibition awards he has won over many years.

With no prior experience Grahame started to paint in his early 30s and the fact that he clearly remembers the problems and frustrations of learning watercolour has helped to make him a particularly sympathetic tutor, passing on lessons and techniques over more than 20 years that are proven to ease the way.

His website is a great resource for the watercolour painter and his YouTube painting channel has over 23000 subscribers. He has produced two DVDs, and two books with Search Press with a third on the way. He has also contributed to other books and he been a regular contributor to the UK magazine Artists and Illustrators for several years. He considers himself to be a watercolour impressionist, attempting to capture the essence of a subject rather than precise detail and in common with most artists he believes that plein air observation, sketching and painting is the key to success in this beautiful medium. He uses a logical approach to translate the landscape into watercolours full of light, excitement and impact.
