Kathryn Maple wins Sunday Times Watercolour Competition 2014

Congratulations to Kathryn who has won First Prize in the Sunday Times Watercolour Competition 2014. 
Louis Wise of the Sunday Times writes that "Maple’s astonishing work looks as if it was conceived in the Deep South, but Fat Boy’s is, in fact, a cafe right by where she works, in Trinity Buoy Wharf, far out in east London. She even has lunch there sometimes. Maple, from Maidstone, Kent, is fond of the “odd and out of place in life”, and this slice of Americana in E14 fits the bill. The work is large enough (116cm x 86cm), but small by her standards; she builds each painting up by layering over time and, as this picture shows, is happy to use watercolours in a variety of ways."
