A digitally painted watercolour of a still lake in the calm that sometimes presages a thunder storm. Coniferous trees on the far shore are reflected in the mirror stillness of the water and a tiny rowboat in the foreground reminds me of the simpler summer days of my childhood.

I am a self taught artist painting digitally with Corel Painter 11. I have been painting for about five years. I have my own website and blog because I enjoy demonstrating what I am doing as an artist. Most of my art is digital watercolour painted from a blank canvas without special filters or photo manipulations of any kind. I use the digital paintbrushes and paint as if they were real tools and I look upon my methods and tools for painting as another medium.

I am a Digital Watercolourist living in Toronto, Ontario. I paint watercolours of landscape, floral and still life subjects using Corel Painter 12. I have been painting for about seven years and writing about it for five. I also print and sell my work online and privately.
