Meadow flowers with ivy and olive sprigs, a bowl with a river smoothed pebble and a piece of irradiated quartz. Watercolur and bodycolour on paper
River washed trees and surrounding hills. Watercolour on paper. It was so hot that I had to load the brush heavily with paint. The paint dried on the paper quickly leaving sharp edges.

Kat and Pete’s House
Jean and Bob’s House
This is from 1997 when I was still at school; I was always discouraged from this graphic style by teachers so I don’t have much around.

A Marsh Harrier, my contribution to Cambridge Community Quilt.
Marsh Harrier painted at school after work experience at Wicken Fen.
I admit I’m getting too much mileage out of old stuff recently (this is from 1995) but I am posting this to set the bar; I really want to get back into regular practice with water colours.
