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.

A trio of Tower Bridge watercolour paintings

This good mood was bolstered even more when, on arrival at the exhibition… Read More
