Lot Essay

Flint commented on his watercolours of sands and figures on sands, 'In my opinion, technically the most difficult of all forms of water-colour painting and the purest. I might be asked why and the answer would be that these subjects are essentially the most delicate, direct and subtle of all. Any heaviness, any fumbling, any muddiness of colour would ruin them. I claim that there is far more in them than meets even most professional eyes, and I unashamedly confess to amusement at imitators' efforts' (see W. Russell Flint, More than Shadows, London, 1943, p. 34).
