A Bee, see – Jean Haines. Image size 38 x 28cm original watercolour on paper.
“Jean Haines is arguably one of the worlds most accomplished and inspirational artists and in this her fifth book she explores one of her most beloved subjects. Taking inspiration from her own beautiful garden in the English countryside where she lives “
Living in China was a time when studying brush control had the greatest impact on the evolvement of Jeans style. Later working with artists from India and Pakistan introduced vibrant colours in her results compared to her previous more quiet watercolours created whilst living in Europe.
The combination of East meets West in her style is unavoidable and to be enjoyed. Free flow of water along with no fear of working directly minus the use of a preliminary sketch leads Jean to amazing results that often leave viewers of her working in awe. Light and the use of beautiful colour along with the ability to take any ordinary subject and turn it into an extraordinary painting with consistently unique results is what many artists aspire to achieve. Furthermore Jean has the ability to install enthusiasm and inspirational motivation in all around her.
