Watercolour Flower Paintings
The majority of my work focuses on flower painting both detailed painting and a more loose style. I paint flowers from real life and from photographs I have taken at Cambridge Botanic Gardens.
I am often inspried to paint landscapes by places we have visited in particular the North Norfolk Coast and The Isle of Mull where I am a regular visitor, see landscape portfolio.

Testimonial - "Thank you very much for a lovely day yesterday. In particular thank you for all your work on preparation, bringing so many resources for us and for the inspiration! We both enjoyed it. Thanks again Alison and Paul"
I also run family workshops the last one was for a 70th birthday which included three generations, the grand children, parents and grandparents.
Feedback from the 70th Birthday wiorkshop - "Thank you for organising such an enjoyable "birthday surprise" for me, I thoroughly enjoyed "dabbling" in watercolour painting again and I think you have encouraged me enough to persuade me to take it up again as a hobby. I was delighted that everyone else thoroughly enjoyed the experience and were quite surprised and very pleased with their results. Your framing over efforts made all the difference.
Thank you for the super art party for Granny's 70th party. It was great! !! George age 8
