Glorious Morn

Primrose Explosion

Primroses caught in an absolute  riot of colour 

 Flowers  literally bursting to life from a first and second wash

When life is wonderful and your mood is light and cheerful it is impossible not to portray these emotions in your work.The sun is shining outside my studio window and the day ahead is going to be really brilliant. Colour is  flowing across clean fresh white pieces of paper and  exploding with dramatic impact as they interact. It is mesmerising to watch.

It is amazing how sunshine effects our mood as does colour. This wash of spring primroses is really exciting already and needs very little to complete the composition. I decided to show how I paint these beautiful subjects as part of my new DVD " Amazing Ways With Watercolour" because gaining an initial flow is often the key to a successful finish in a painting.

Now its time to settle  to the selection of paintings for the first photography shoot of my second book which takes place this week. I really am so excited and really looking forward to the session.

Whatever you are doing today I hope it leaves you feeling peaceful,happy and relaxed!


"Amazing Ways With Watercolour" will be available from Town House Films from 31st March.2011.
