Sydney-based painter Margaret Ackland describes her new body of work as ‘accidental history’. Departing from her traditional oils, The Watercolour News is an iterative series of hundreds of watercolours, mostly A5 and smaller. The turn to watercolour, she says, came as a result of a deadline prohibitive of the time an oil painting needs to dry. It turned out to be a productive constraint, setting the artist off on a more than year-long creative obsession.
