Paul Cox's approach over the years has changed in that he has become braver about reorganising his subjects, architecture and perspective in his topographical work to make the images more dynamic. However the subjects of interest and his attitude hasn't changed.
Why watercolour? Paul doesn't work with a traditional watercolour
technique, he works quite loosely, allowing the brush work to define the drawing, leaving wet areas to introduce and mix new colours and tonal values. Due to the speed he generally works at, the medium can convey a gestural response to a life situation and, at it's best, can look fresh and luminous.
