My name is Ross Buckner, I'm a watercolour pencil portrait artist and illustrator located in Andover, United Kingdom. I am completely self taught and always looking for that next challenge to push me further along in this adventure.

Art for me is a release, it's a method for me to spread my wings and rise above the generalist outlook of life. Having spent many years with my creativity tethered and constrained, it got to the point where I had to take a leap of faith in 2017, pick up some watercolour pencils, and unleash my pent up artistry. I have never looked back.

The aspects of drawing that I love the most are blending colours and capturing some personality and characterisation from the models. Getting those subtle aspects locked down so the portrait looks alive and ready to jump from the canvas, is one of the most exciting challenges I have come across to date.
