Leaves from an Old Song Book (Cecilia) (1963). Sir William Russell Flint (Scottish, 1880-1969). Watercolour. Richard Green.Flint was a watercolourist of remarkable technical skill. Though he painted also in oils and tempera, his most characteristic works were watercolour landscapes and figure compositions, elaborately carried out and displaying great virtuosity, in the gradations of a wash and a special manner of enriching its effect by taking advantage of a grained surface paper.
I love this painting: strong women! It's so nice to see women outside interacting and not posing primly in a study or manicured garden. 1stdibs.com | Raquel and Manuela Sir William Russell Flint was a painter, watercolourist and illustrator.
