Watercolour has been used for thousands of years. Artists continue to use this medium to create diverse representations of ideas, perceptions and spaces. Watercolour has the capacity to offer rich, vivid tones or soft compositions and can be applied to a variety of supports from paper and canvas to stone, wood and fabrics.
On display in Versatile are artworks from the Toowoomba Regional Art Gallery – Toowoomba City Collection that incorporate watercolour. From traditional landscapes to prints combining watercolour with other media, this exhibition showcases the versatility of this medium and highlights different techniques artists have used to apply it.
