Watercolour 25×20cm W and N Artists watercolour on Saunders Waterford 200lb cold press paper.

This little watercolour is a step in the right direction…I’ve been suffering from a severe case of painter’s block over several weeks and have only been uploading images from my archive, so this is a blessed breakthrough! Inspired by the narcissi I had in a pot on the patio.

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.

    I am sooooooo glad that you have posted a painting! It is as usual, gorgeous. Ann, at the moment I suffer from the same condition! :( :)

  • Oh Beatrice, I can sympathise. It’s a very odd feeling and makes you realise how totally taken up you are when you are in full painting flow. It’ll come back, worry not!

    Perfection in every way. So glad these beauties carried you thru the block!

  • Thank you, Carolyn! It was the light that did it and then keeping it small…not being too ambitious.
