About the Artist
Owen Williams has been a sporting landscape painter for over 30 years, steadily honing his craft to become one of the leading watercolour artists in the country.
A keen shooter and fisherman himself, Owen's main concern as an artist is to capture that fleeting moment when the shifting light in a scene seems to encapsulate a mood or atmosphere that speaks to a deeper truth about man's relationship with the natural world. Although in many ways a difficult medium to work with, Owen finds that watercolour is the best means to accomplish his aims.
"Although the wayward nature of watercolour might be regarded as an impediment, to the experienced artist it does allow the freedom and looseness to create the soft blending of pigments that suggest sky, water, mist and twilight elements of distant landscape," he explains. "Over the years I have learned to allow watercolour to work its own magic into my pictures."
