Australian artist Jane Blundell was always fascinated by the natural world of rocks, plants and animals. Her early watercolour and pen and ink works show meticulous detail and a passion for colour. Majoring in etching at the City Art Institute, she spent a year working in an etching studio before completing her Graduate Diploma in Art Education. She taught in schools in Melbourne and Sydney for a number of years before moving to the USA and then Singapore. Now back in Sydney, Australia, Jane is an award winning artist, and has had four solo exhibitions. She illustrated a children’s book Kayla & the Magical Tree, 2003 and has written two books on colour mixing, Watercolour Mixing Charts 2012 and The Ultimate Mixing Palette: a World of Colours, 2015, and has three more in progress.

She is a member of the Australian Watercolour Institute, an exhibiting botanical and watercolour artist and an active Urban Sketcher. She teaches colour mixing, watercolour, sketching and drawing to adults in classes and workshops throughout Australia and internationally.

“I discovered DANIEL SMITH watercolours while living the New Jersey in 1995, soon after they were first released, and have been using and recommending them ever since. I love the vibrancy of colour, the range of single pigment colours, the granulation of many of the pigments and the ease that these paints rewet in a palette. I like the clear labels and that the paints are named according to their pigment, rather than with a less helpful title, and that if the paint is a mixture it says so on the tube. I particularly love the DANIEL SMITH exclusive colours such as Buff Titanium, Goethite-Brown Ochre and Quinacridone Gold along with many of the incredible Primatek paints.”
