Watercolour 36×26cm painted with artist’s watercolour on Arches 140not paper.

Had fun making this country scene a little more festive with the addition of a holly bush in the foreground. I have to thank one of my students, Alan, for letting me use his photo for reference for this painting. This was during last year’s snow….unusual these days for the UK. This year is even worse, with temperatures of minus7c here today on 7/12/10.

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.

    Beautifully composed Ann, from the details in the foreground to the fantastic tree line in the background. Particularly like the colours in the frozen stream. Very well done.
