Sadly another great watercolourist has passed on. Terry Harrison passed away a couple of weeks ago and shall be sorely missed.

It was through his encouragement that I painted my 'Boat on Pond'. Rest In Peace Terry.

Gosh! It was sad to hear of Terry Harrison's passing.  Your painting of the boat on the pond is excellent Val. Your foreground trees are amazing - in fact, the entire painting is outstanding.

What a sad post to read, Val - but what an impact he made - I remember when you did that's just lovely and what a wonderful way to remember a special person in your life...

Very sad news indeed. I have followed him for many years and have some of his books.

Oh, how sad. I also have one of his books. What a fine teacher and painter he was.  :(

Oh dear. :o  What sad news. However we can't feel diminished by his passing since he left such a legacy which will continue to instruct and give pleasure. His were the first books on watercolour that I borrowed from the library many years ago...  Maybe he's in angel heaven and painting spectacular cloud formations now?
