Message from Joe:  

"I paint my native England and other landscapes such as the great mountains and canyons of the Middle East where I have travelled thousands of miles. I was taught by my late father, Prosper James Dowden.  Television companies have kindly allowed me to broadcast my methods and help many fellow artists. It is a great honour to have had my books published in Chinese, Japanese and Russian as well as many other languages. My books have introduced painters to watercolour including some who are now themselves internationally respected and acclaimed watercolour painters.  I try to keep a humble attitude toward the landscape which inspires me to paint. I try not impose too much of myself on my works. I allow the subject to speak so it can express itself through the materials if possible.
