Watercolour 36×26cm Artists watercolour on Arches 140lb cold press paper.

The cosmos have been so good this summer…they are still flowering in mid September. Here I’ve re-used an old composition/design but have combined the cosmos with some pink phlox that were there earlier in the summer.

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.
