Getting the beauty of the Herefordshire landscape down on one small square of watercolour paper was a challenge but I think it worked! Landscapes scare me to be honest….. what do you include, how much should you leave out, and is it really possible to show how you feel about a place with a few strokes with a brush? I had a go, I hope you enjoy it!

This is the view looking out from Yat Rock, Symonds Yat, with the snaking shape of the River Wye in the foreground and the hills of Herefordshire in the distance.

Watercolours on Fabriano Artistico extra white hot press paper, the original work measures 7.5" square approximately.

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”.

    I really love it Ruth. I think you captured the beauty and the feeling of spring there. Hard to do on a small piece of paper, you managed to get in quite a bit of depth with the bird’s eye view.
