Devil-may-care watercolour sketches

I’m so enjoying my sketchbook work that I can’t quite seem to tear myself away from it! So far, I’ve been painting on both sides of every page in this sketchbook, and have only just passed the halfway mark in it! I’ve been immensely flattered by requests to buy some of these sketches so I’m… Read More

More watercolour sketches

I’m pleased to report that my recovery from being laid up with back pain continues apace, to the extent that I’ve now been able to return to work. This is great news, though I’m still having to be extra careful and am spending most of my days standing at my desk rather than sitting at… Read More

Yet more sketches from the sick bed!

I’m so pleased to report that since last week, my back seems to be recovering in leaps and bounds. Sadly, this analogy is purely symbolic; I fear that actual leaps and bounds may still be some way off! This post is, I’m afraid, a straightforward sequel to last week’s series of sickbed sketches – although… Read More

Sickbed watercolour sketches

Well. So much for all the ‘Hopefully by the the time you read this I’ll be on holiday’ that I expressed last week! Unfortunately, the back pain that I was suffering from last week took a drastic turn for the worse, rendering me bed bound for most of the past week. I had hoped that… Read More

A watercolour commission

Back in September, I was delighted to receive an email via my website inquiring whether this painting was for sale: I replied pretty much straight away to say thait yes, it was for sale but I just needed to locate it first. I have an accurate record of my sales and was 99% certain that… Read More

This week’s post will be unapologetically brief for three reasons: I’m on holiday I have very poor reception on my phone I have very little to share From a practical watercolour painting perspective the most exciting development… Read More

Copic ciao grey tones – a review

Happy New Year one and all! I know that my first post of the new decade, on the very first day of 2020 is the ideal day for me to be setting out my own watercolour manifesto for the year or even years ahead, but I’m afraid that I have to confess that my manifesto… Read More

Witterings’ watercolour

I had reason to trawl back through my photographs the other day in a desperate attempt to win a discussion/argument about where we were, when were we there, and who were we there with, all of which is now clouded in the mists of time (at least in my mind!). Needless to say, I was… Read More

A walk in the woods, in watercolour

In a change to previously advertised content, this week’s watercolours are both examples of me choosing subjects by how quickly I think I can paint them. I had hoped to feature my new watercolour palette, however, as part of the post I really wanted to film a short video and the light over the weekend,… Read More
