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”.

    so,so gorgeous – stunning
    What make of water colours do you use, Ruth ?

  • Thank you so much Susan. I use a mixture of W&N, Daler Rowney, M Graham and Daniel Smith watercolours but I think this was mainly W&N.
