Watercolour 36×26cm Artist’s watercolours on Arches 140lb cold pressed paper.

On a recent painting holiday that I attended in Andalucia, these pitchers were outside the studio and we used them to set up a still life on a rainy day. They were a bit worse for wear with the enamel worn through in several places. All the better for rendering in watercolour!

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.

    Wonderful rust and great light!
