Since I started using DANIEL SMITH watercolours my work has changed dramatically and the feedback I receive on the vibrancy of my new colour range is amazing. I love the stunning colours available in the DANIEL SMITH Watercolour collection and I am also fascinated in how many interact leading to fascinatingly unique effects. Perfect for my style which is why I am delighted to share my favourite shades. I discovered these superb watercolours whilst on tour in USA and have become a true DANIEL SMITH addict since then. Teaching watercolour workshops internationally gives me the opportunity to meet artists of all levels, who like me are passionate about watercolour. Artists who are also falling in love with this exciting brand. As products, they are addictive in that as an artist I can’t stop using them. DANIEL SMITH gives me the excitement, drama, intrigue and strength in my work that has been missing until now. A wonderful discovery and journey into the world of colour.” —Jean Haines

Highly in demand, International watercolourist Jean Haines SWA is well known for her passion for working in her favourite medium, watercolour. Having lived and travelled in many countries this popular artist has had the opportunity to develop her skills creating incredible paintings whilst under the influence of masters from many countries including Asia, the Middle East and Europe. Living in China was a time when studying brush control had the greatest impact on the evolvement of Jeans style. Later working with artists from India and Pakistan introduced vibrant colours in her results compared to her previous more quiet watercolours created whilst living in Europe. Artists travel from all over the world to Jeans’ popular watercolour workshops held in Hampshire UK. Jean regularly teaches fully booked courses in Europe, USA, Australia, Mexico such is the demand for her inspirational teaching style. The combination of East meets West influences from living in Asia, along with no fear of working directly minus the use of a preliminary sketch leads Jean to amazing results. Jean exhibits in established galleries.
