Nancy Tichborne

Nancy Tichborne is a New Zealand watercolour artist whose first two DVDs have proved international bestsellers. In this, her third DVD, she shows how to paint landscapes. Firstly outside and subsequently in her studio working from photographs. In her first DVD, Nancy introduced the viewer to the basics of watercolour painting. In the second, she went on to explain a series of different techniques. Now here in her third, she inspires the viewer to try the spontaneous approach to painting outside. Also how to tackle large washes, shadows on hillsides, reflections on water and how to simplify complicated foliage using her layering technique of wash over wash. This 1 hour 20min DVD is designed to give both novices and experienced watercolourists much inspirational and useful viewing.

Running time : 80 minutes

Nancy Tichborne is a New Zealand watercolor artist with an international following. Born in Levin in 1942, she received a scholarship from Otago Girls' High School to train in the United Kingdom - at the St Martin's School of Art in London. After this she lived and worked in Great Britain and Hong Kong. Coming back to New Zealand in 1969, she spent several happy years working as a landscape designer in Rotorua. Currently Nancy lives on a 4 hectare (11 acre) rural property on Banks Peninsula in the South Island of New Zealand, where she and her husband Bryan have a large garden. In 2011 the New Zealand Gardens Trust designated this garden a 'Garden of Significance'.

Nancy is probably best known for the annual calendars she and Bryan published for 25 years. These featured mainly floral and cat subjects but also included fly fishing and vineyard themes. Nancy has put out three instructional dvds/video tapes on watercolors and has been involved in ten books, both as illustrator and writer. Over 500 people have attended the watercolor workshops she ran for some years. In addition she has illustrated four stamp issues - commissioned by the postal authorities of Bhutan, Pitcairn Islands and New Zealand.

Nancy's style of watercolors is unique... Her uncompromising technical ability and the way she captures the effects of light on her subjects, has made her one of the world's leading watercolorists. Her work has universal appeal and has found favor in many countries.

In May 2007, Nancy was appointed Patron of Watercolor New Zealand... a post she was honored to accept.
