The Wivenhoe Encyclopedia

Everard Longland Everard read Modern Languages at university and taught at Colchester Royal Grammar School for many years, but he always wanted to spend more time painting. He was able to do this during a sabbatical year in Santa Barbara, California in the early 1990s and has not looked back since. He has had a number of exhibitions and his work is in private collections wherever he has travelled. 

Everard Longland Watercolour is his choice of medium touching on many themes, but flowers are paramount. The artist lives and paints in Wivenhoe, spending part of each year in Southern California whose light maybe influences his choice of colour. He says of his flower paintings:

"It almost seems an affront to paint flowers; to try to represent such perfect forms and colour; yet it would be a shame to avoid some recollection of their visual impact. In this vein, I attempt the delicacies of floral art through shape, pattern, tone, line, association and discovery; not avoiding the botanical but neither being a slave to natural forms, since illusion is the painter's tool. Watercolour lends itself to the translucency of petals; and its stubborn unwillingness to follow the brush always adds that dynamic magic which is the essence of a flower."
