The art of minimalism is not new and examples abound in our cluttered world. The Japanese were perhaps the first to paint and design in a minimal way and now contemporary emotional paintings can regularly be found in a minimal form. Minimalism - the way to say a lot with a little.
Here is a minimalist painting painted in pure watercolour. The subtleties of watercolour can be used to great effect in the art of minimalism and this example demonstrates the beautiful delicate transition of colours within the greys. Any medium can be used to create a painting but watercolour has powers that are sometimes beyond other media.
