Welcome to my on-line gallery

I am an Australian watercolour (watercolor) artist, though I also work with other mediums.

I have been painting in watercolour for over twelve years and am more passionate about it now than ever. Watercolours when done well are hard to beat. They have a fluid, spontaneous quality speaking of confidence, skill and a clear message of what the artist wanted to say.

While primarily self taught, over the years I have had the pleasure of studying under some wonderful tutors at workshops I have attended, three of these artists include Joseph Zbukvic, Greg Allen and Alvaro Castagnet.

In addition to this site I have recently started two others. The first is: www.paintingwithwatercolors.com. It is a resource for my students and anyone interested in the skills required to paint watercolours. I also have a blog which has useful tips and other information you may be interested in. The blog is:  www.joecartwrightswatercolourblog.blogspot.com.  These sites are very new and will be developed over time.

I run weekly art lessons, specialising in watercolour, my classes are held at the Nepean Art Society, at Penrith (on the outskirts of Sydney near the Lower Blue Mountains), in addition I conduct a number of week long workshops in January of each year.

I hope you enjoy browsing. Please come back from time to time to see what I am up to.
