Welcome to my Watercolours
My watercolours feature plant and flower studies, buildings and still life. Most of my botanical subjects are local, from Whitfield, which is situated in the West Allen Valley, South West Northumberland.
On my travels I have painted watercolours of Italian Cathedrals, sculptures, a Burmese teak Monastery in Myanmar, and Mediterranean plants in Italian gardens.
I have completed commissions of houses in Northumberland, Norfolk, France, Sussex and Cumbria and recently some wild life paintings, mainly of birds
From the first spring bulbs and the green leaves on an early perennial to the blue of an early summer on an eryngium, the plants surrounding me offer a huge variety of colours and textures.
From time to time I also paint in oil, pencil, crayon and ink but my favourite drawing tool is the pencil. I enjoy drawing botanical subjects, particularly the hard lines of spring bulbs and some early summer perennials. The later the season the more I turn to colour and by the time autumn is here I use watercolour for everything.
I have designed a range of gifts using my botanical watercolour images. These include Greeting cards, wrapping papers, tableware, tea towels and cushions. These products are available online under ‘gifts’ at the top of this page. I have a limited number of products at The Whitfield Pantry.
