Flowers are indeed hard to ignore. They brighten our lives and our surroundings. This work shows how to paint scenes full of colour, mood and character, inspired by flowers growing naturally: along riverbanks, in woods, in the landscape and in parks and gardens.
Flowers are indeed hard to ignore. They brighten our lives and our surroundings, and I can think of no better medium to use to paint them than watercolour because it is such a lively and dynamic medium. Learning to control it - or should I say to not control it too much - is a challenge. It is, however, all the more fun for being so. "Watercolour" reveals its secrets gradually to anyone who is prepared to give it a go. As a medium it can be surprising or exasperating, but it is always fascinating and ultimately rewarding.
