I’m a watercolour artist and art tutor from Nottingham, UK. I love painting flowers particularly and sharing techniques with others as I really rate this wonderful medium. I have written two watercolour tips and techniques books which demonstrate the way I like to use watercolour.

    Incredible use of negative space and shadow work! A perfect palette selection as well! Great work!

  • Thanks, Ken. I was pleased with the colours this time as I often get too tied up with green.
