Daniel Mackie Watercolour artist with something to say.

September 5, 2011

There’s a refreshing difference to the work of Daniel Mackie and thats namely due to the fact

that in 2010 Daniel abandoned Photoshop. Now he uses watercolour on heavy 300gsm paper.

There is more explanation as to the meaning behind each of these pieces on Daniels’ site too.

I like the way his figures twist and scrunch themselves into all kinds of shapes and positions as if

they are being affected by the patterning and symbols within their limbs.

You may be able to spot a few famous people amongst his figures too.

More of the processes and stages in the creation of the work here can be found of Daniels’ blog with

additional information about his decision making as to how each finished piece has evolved.

There are obvious links to Japanese art that creep in too. I love this swimmer and the ocean patterning.

      Thanks for the comment Hazel, he has a lovely style, and quite unique I think too.
