Watercolour is a wonderful medium for expressing these qualities. I cover a wide range of subject from landscapes, town life, flowers, portraits and figures. Any subject can lead to an exciting work of art. Artists, I believe, see the world with more intensity through active observation, so are able to show people something they may not have seen or noticed. I am always looking for an interesting viewpoint which I can bring to my audience allowing them to connect more closely to the world around them.
