Dear Miss Singleton,
I red with interest your online dting exerience (see theOctober 2012 issue o 
Hu). I hve just shut the dooron three yers o rketing ysel vi severl online sites. Iet bout 15 en nd robbly tlked to nother 30, ettwo with roise. Te rst one osted tht he ws n “oc-csionl soker”. Ater severl onths I lerned this entone every 20 inutes. Te second one turned out to be stillin love with n ex. Te lst n I et hd his role osteds  joke by his kids. An odd wy to use.I wnted to understnd why I ws hving such  diculttie nd strted reding dting site orus. Generl consen-sus is tht bout one third o eole online re rried or in reltion-shis. Sort o ut  whole new sin on it or e.Seed dting? I understnd tht woen re exected to be t lestten yers younger thn the en in the grou. oo scry-dventurousor  ldy in her 50s.My the strs collide or you in n old shioned wy.

I posed with it at Damanhur, a modern undergroundart installation in northern Italy, and also in front of oneof the caves in southern France where prehistoric artistsleft their work. I thought the fact that they were both artinstallations, both underground, and thousands of yearsapart was interesting.

It is not y wont to quote rtists’ stteentsin y rticles or
Hu, but I ke nexcetion this tie. Rosy Soerville is nrtist nd rt instructor whose rst love iswtercolour. Ater n bsorbing nd edu-ctive converstion with her, I revisited thertist’s stteent she rovides on her hoege t <rosysoerville.co> nd relizedtht I cnnot irove on her sution o why she is  wtercolour rtist:“Pinting is or e  edittion. I love the chl-lenge, the unique oveents o the ediu, thecontrsts o control nd unredictbility, the to-tl ocus it dends. I enjoy the tension betweenworking within rules, nd llowing intuition tosek. I work ostly in the studio, but like to intin nture en lein ir. Trough the ly o light nddrk, o colours, shes, textures, lines, the denednd the undened, the stted nd the ilied, I t-tet to cture soe essence o y subject, be itin nture, eole or objects.”Te chllenges resented by her reerred edi-u re recisely wht kes wtercolour the er-ect choice or her rtistic sel-exression. Anyonewho hs tried it knows tht, unlike inting withoils or crylics or chlk or coloured encil, int-ing with wtercolours involves  willingness to tkechnces with  ckle nd cricious rtner. AsWikiedi uts it, “Te diculty in wtercolourinting is lost entirely in lerning how to n-ticite nd leverge the behviour o wter, rtherthn tteting to control or dointe it.”Te wide vriety o intings dorning herhoe gllery nd clssroo re  testent to herstery o her ediu. Tey rnge ro vividbstrcted lndsces, to uted ortrits o eo-le nd birds, to still lie renditions o shoes ndorl bouquets. Ech is rerkble or its tngiblesuccess in ortrying the essence o its subject; Iunderstnd exctly wht Soerville ens whenshe writes bout “the dened nd the undened,the stted nd the ilied.” Nowhere is this oreevident thn in her ortrits o eole. One glncet “Bridget” nd you truly wish you were  riend o this wise, cring won.

Rosy Somerville —Capturing Essencewith Watercolours
nd other “cnvses.” In generl, she reers theluinosity she cn chieve with the trnsrency o wtercolours, but is thoroughly knowledgeblebout other otions. She ints with crylics ndoils, but returns ost requently to her roots inEnglnd where wtercolour inting hs ourishedsince the 18
century.Born in Beconsield, Buckinghshire, notr ro London, Rosy is the dughter o twoeductors. Her other in rticulr encourgedcretive thinking, nd Rosy’s drwing kit wsher constnt conion s  youngster. She re-ebers sending hours creting eticulously reresenttionl studies o lor nd un. A-ter coleting the oundtion yer o  Diloin Art nd Design, Rosy studied Euroen Liter-ture t Wrwick University. Although she now recognizes tht she inherited the ilil tech-ing gene (her grndrents were lso techers),she decided to live in Indi or  while instedo ebrking on  teching creer. When shereturned to Englnd in her lte 20s to ut downroots, she chose  creer in grhic design; herclients included ny lrge hrceuticlconies.Ronce in the or o  Cndin service-n brought Soerville to Cnd in 1996, ndthe coule re now hily situted in  lovely hoe t the edge o Cr where her husbnd Incn hotogrh birds (nd  blck ber!) ro thebck tio.Rosy’s wtercolour eihny occurred in 1999 when she took wtercolour course. “Soething bout the wy the int oves onthe er, the trnslucency, the innite ossibilities o so ny tech-niques nd cheicl interctions, the whole rocess o exloring y subject — when I’ inting, I orget the outside world entirely. Ittkes e to y eceul lce where I’ coletely hy.”By 2005 she begn showing her work t venues like the OttwArt Festivl nd the uli Festivl. A riend sw her work nd intro-duced her to the Arts Director t the Visul Arts Centre in Orlens,where she lived t the tie. Tey told her she should be teching,nd she continued to tech wtercolour rt t the OSA (Ot-tw School o Art) Shenkn Centre in Orlens until lst yer. Now she teches t the Neen Cretive Arts Centre ndoers both beginner nd interedite courses ro her hoestudio in Cr.When I sked her wht she thought ws the ost iortntthing she could tech her rt students, Soerville resonded,“to connect with nd exress their inner joy through this ver-stile ediu.” Tis sounds like  course worth tking. Ac-cording to  recent rticle t <slte.co>, leontologists ndreserchers in neuroesthetics tend to link the develoento odern hun cognition to the origin o our bility to ex-ress ourselves s rtists nd historins through cve inting,scultures nd other rehistoric rt. Reresenting the world insybols y hve herlded the beginnings o lnguge. Rosy hs n innte bility nd dee urge to exress hersel throughher rt, nd to shre her git or doing so with others.
