Watercolours on paper
Sizes…..10 x14 or 12 x 16 inches
When I go travelling I like to include a small box of watercolour paints, a few brushes and a pad of watercolour paper in my suitcase.
I am a keen gardener and love colourful flowers and plants, so if I can find an opportunity I excuse myself from my host and hostess to enjoy the sensational vibrant colours of plants growing in their garden.
Watercolour painting can be a quick and pleasing way to capture the beauty of plants around me, and this is particularly so when I travel to warmer climes where I get the opportunity to paint exotic flowers.
I find this exciting and even a simple dabbling for an hour with my watercolours can provide me with colourful memories of happy times and fun in the sun!
