Watercolour Competition 2023
Welcome to Internatioanl Watercolour Society New Zealand
New Zealand is famous for its amazing nature, heritage, and scenery. We may easily have breath-taking clouds, twilights, oceans, waves, snows, mountains, and flowers here. All of which are unstoppable sources for artists. In addition, the effects from various watercolour washes can perfectly reflect the beauties.
When what you see becomes what you are painting, you are letting everyone enjoy the touching moment through your art pieces.
That is why IWS NZ shall exist, not only meeting world-class art masters, but also NZ artists let the global people experience our charming world.
