Watercolour Experiments

Floral Fantasy

Sometimes it is great to simply paint. To just pick up a brush and  throw  colour on paper for the sheer joy of it and not worry about the outcome. I seem to be surrounded by artists who have to achieve a frameable painting each time they pick up their brushes.

I do admire their way of working but my own personality has always been that of having fun and enjoying every minute that I am alive. Yes, I do paint  serious pieces that are framed and  placed in collections for galleries. But most of those paintings and my techniques have developed over time by my knowing how to enjoy holding a brush rather than feeling it is something I have to do.

So here is a painting that is developing from a collective group of techniques and ideas and within it as always there is a favourite section.

I love the shape of this  flower which is purely from my imagination.

Layers  in shapes form a huge part of my style so every single experiment leads me further to where I want to be as an artist. 

And the road ahead is going to  be a wonderful journey of experimentation for me.
