Watercolour artist Roger Simpson paints in a loose, free and lively manner, he creates paintings which seem to be in demand at galleries and exhibitions all over Yorkshire and beyond. The artist loves painting in watercolour and paints almost everyday, although he has drawn and painted most of his life it was only around five years ago that he started to paint seriously in watercolour and hasn't looked back since. He has won awards like "best artist in show" art commendations etc, he has also shown his work at the Mall galleries and the Menier gallery in London. His way of painting goes back to ink sketches of artists such as Leonardo and Michael Angelo which were drawn freely and with spirit. His inspiration mainly comes from practice and experimentation but also from other watercolour artists who show flair and who aren't afraid to do something different.
