Titles aren’t my strong point….. English white roses, painted with watercolours.

Another in my series of small format, affordable art.

5.5″ × 7.5″, watercolour on Artistico extra white.

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”.
