“My love of watercolour, as a medium, is very similar to my love of working with ceramics… There’s an unpredictability to both. You can’t fully control what happens at every stage so you learn to work in partnership. There’s an alchemy involved with what happens when paint hits wet paper… Like watching fireworks! You can’t force it. You can only work with what it gives you.” ~ Nick Eggleston
