Carolyn Judge I’m Carolyn Judge, an Auckland artist. I have been painting with watercolour full time for twelve years. I try to practice my painting and drawing daily. I use many different techniques, styles and materials to achieve textures and effects in my work. I try to break all the rules and myths that surround watercolour to ‘see what might happen’! Watercolour is spontaneous and often uncontrollable and that’s half the fun of it!

I made it my goal early on to learn to paint all and any subjects I choose, be it portraits, (human and animal), landscapes, (basic and complex), still life, flowers and birds. I don’t want to be held back by the complexities of watercolour.
