HIGHGATE WATERCOLOUR GROUP

I work mainly from direct observation. My favourite subjects are urban scenes and landscapes. I paint directly in front of the scene or make drawings which I later develop into paintings in the studio. I also enjoy painting and drawing from the figure and printmaking. I have painted mainly in London and the south east of England but also abroad in France, Germany, Spain, Greece and India. The media I use:- watercolour, gouache, pastel, charcoal, acrylic and sometimes collage. I trained at Camberwell School of Art and The London College of Printing. I taught for some years at the City Lit. and Westminster and Camden Adult Education Institutes. Website: www.chriscookpaintings2.com
