Leigh Cooke is an English watercolourist. A watercolourist, and English – naturally, since it was in England, in the eighteenth century, that watercolour was elevated to the status of a truly noble art. Inveterate travellers and pioneers of modern-day tourism, many British artists took their lightweight, portable watercolour boxes with them, painting landscapes along the way. Above all, watercolour’s appeal lies in its irrevocable immediacy and poetry, its transparent fluidity and lightness of touch, requiring a perfect mastery of gesture (retouching and corrections are impossible). Leigh Cooke’s delicate use of line, and her subtle treatment of shading and colour, perfectly express the fragility of wild flowers, spelling out their message. ‘I like flowers, I think flowers like me’ - a touch of humour as British as its creator!
