I just love watercolour! I never tire of observing the reactions of the pigment, water and paper working together to produce effects that are unique to watercolour. I am in awe of its beauty, translucency and freshness. As a medium it can be technically challenging and somewhat unpredictable, though I think that this is the attraction. Although I tend to prefer to paint more traditionally in watercolour, I try to keep my subject matter simple and my brushstrokes loose and swift. When I return to my watercolours after using other mediums I appreciate its charm all over again.
