“Watson is a master of invention….Each Paintings tells a specific story, but the most impressive feature is the artist’s use of colour…. Like Matisse, Watson knows that one may have warm and cool shades of red, warm and cool shades of blue. But he knows this instinctively, without any formal training. What he knows cannot be verbalised, and cannot be taught, yet no one could see these paintings and not be convinced of its profundity.’
