Pumpkin patch watercolour painting

Here’s a painting of a view that I had in mind after our recent visit to Poyning’s pumpkin field to pick up our annual Halloween pumpkin: When I first painted this, I was sort of okay with it, but also a tad underwhelmed by it too! When I came back to it the following day,… Read More

Watercolour homework

Is there anyone else out there that still has recurring dreams and memories about how little revision you’d done come the morning of your exam?

Sunburst and stormclouds watercolour painting

A dramatic watercolour sky to start with this week’s post! Many years ago, (the photo tells me that it was back in 2009!) we spent a few days exploring The Witterings in West Sussex, near Chichester.

When time permits, I’m always intrigued to look at the feeds of… Read More

A wonderful watercolour feeling

Heart Research UK’s ‘Anonymous HeART’ fundraising auction came to an end at 9pm on Sunday 11th November. I’d been following the auction closely – especially my own watercolour submissions – as I was really keen to see how much they might raise to support such a great cause. As the auction was anonymous, this is… Read More

A surprise watercolour shortlisting!

Worthing Open 2018 Friday 2nd November was the Private View of the Worthing Open 18 exhibition. I was already in a good mood having spent a lovely day enjoying the delights of Worthing with my daughter who was still on half-term holiday. This good mood was bolstered even more when, on arrival at the exhibition… Read More
