Mike Chaplin is a member of the Royal Watercolour Society and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and is recognised as one of the leading watercolour artists of his generation. His love of teaching and his enthusiasm for his paining was evident in his celebrated role as resident art expert in more than 60 episodes of the much loved T.V. programme Watercolour Challenge. Mike's work shows a master of the watercolour medium in action. His paintings have a sense of light and space that only a watercolour can give. For this film Mike traveled to the coastal resort of Southwold on the Suffolk coast to give us an insight into how he tackles the challenge of watercolour.
