Watercolour 25×20cm approx Artists watercolours on Arches 140lb cold pressed paper.

I saw this sunny bench at a cottage we stayed at in Normandy, France a few years back. The building had been converted from an old barn and it was a delightful place to stay.
The design was taken by Medici cards and so it isn’t for sale here as a card.

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.
