These watercolour life paintngs have all been painted with the model in front of me, in a group with other artists. Some of the poses are held for only a few minutes.

 

I get really excited when I paint from a live model - I never know how the pose will be, and how I will manage to represent what I see. I let the paint do the work - I love how watercolour paint flows in unexpected ways, enabling me to express the essence of the pose without unnecessary lines and details. I'm aiming towards being freer and freer with the paint while still holding on to the basic image. Because of the unpredictability of the whole process, it often goes disastrously wrong and I throw away many more paintings than I am pleased with. So I just need to paint more!

 

Most of these original paintings are for sale, and also prints are available for many of them.
