Watercolour with digital added effect. W and N artists watercolours on Arches 140lb cold press paper.

These hardy flowers are out right now in the garden. They have a special beauty with their waxy petals and dark rich foliage. This variety has a carmine colour running through the petals and the foliage.
I love painting them every year in early Spring.

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.
