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.

Texture

I am fascinated by the spontaneity of watercolours and the variety of ways watercolour can be combined with inks and addatives. I particularly enjoy using varied techniques and layering paint in depicting heavily textures objects and surfaces such as those found in peeling paint and rusting objects.

Passionate about all things watercolour! Original paintings of flowers, coastal landscapes & textural rusty subjects. Face to face & online courses.

I specialise in floral painting,coastal landscapes and textural subjects, often drawing inspration from the botanic gardens in Cambridge, the Norfolk coast and the Island of Mull. I use pure watercolour and use experimental techniques combining watercolours with ink and mix media.
