A macro watercolour of a beautiful orange rose which glows with light and colour.

W&N, Daler Rowney and M Graham watercolours on Fabriano Artistico CP paper.

The original is available for sale, contact me through bubblemail.

I have a passion for watercolours and love to play with colour, exploring the effect of combining pigment and water on the paper. Challenging the traditional view that watercolours are pale and washy, I love vibrant colour used in exciting combinations. I am especially drawn to flowers, their three dimensional forms presenting endless challenges.

I won the SAA Amateur Artist of the Year 2012 for my painting “Cosmic Poppies”.
