Having dabbled vaguely in watercolours at odd moments over years, I finally engaged properly with the medium in the early weeks of lockdown 2020. Learning how I should respect the medium rather than just using it to ‘colour in’ was a revelation. But negotiating the jagged edges between watercolour etiquette and my own ingrained artistic style was a continual challenge. After a while, however, the process became sheer pleasure… and continues to be so.

Many of these pictures are for sale (unframed prices starting at £150).

Paintings from January 2021

As the intensity of the pandemic eased in late 2021 I found I did fewer and fewer paintings.
