Watercolour 30×22cm W and N artists on Arches 140not.

This is a scene from the art fair that I attend every year in June. People have a good day out and then wend their weary way home laden with art goodies. That particular year there was good weather…not always the case!

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.
