Watercolour. 36×26cm Saunders Waterford 140rough using W and N artist’s colours.
This is from a photo that one of my students took in Crete. I thought it would make a nice workshop subject.

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.
