Watercolour on paperPlace Made
The Woollastons decided to build a new home and studio in 1971, designed by the architect Ming Ching Fan. It was completed by early 1973.
Toss Wollaston enjoyed watercolour as a medium and wrote how "making a watercolour on white paper is indeed much akin to standing on a diving board, hesitating, gathering oneself together for the exhilarating plunge, then being immersed in the overwhelming element. Surfacing again, one can then review the plunge and get ready for the next..." (Barnett, 1991, p.77).
