Hi, I’ve been painting since my early teens, mostly in watercolours though I do paint in acrylics, gouache and occasionally oils. I also enjoy using aquarelle (watercolour) pencils and pastels.
I find watercolour is a great medium and well-suited to capturing the transient light and colour of the English countryside. Pastels are great for animals and portraits and I use acrylics for larger canvasses and supports. I often use pen and wash, especially if I am doing pictures of buildings or to give the image an extra ‘uumph’ !
Sometimes I add other items to paintings, such as petals and leaves. Salt and sand also add an interesting dimension.
I hope you enjoy looking at my paintings. Visit my page on facebook and ‘follow me’ to see what I’m up to.
