As a watercolourist, I am most comfortable working to a paper size of 20” x 16”. Anything less feels restrictive, anything larger can be daunting. I might not always fill the sheet, but at least it gives me the freedom to manoeuvre. Without that freedom, I find myself constricting an arm or leg to fit the page.
My on-line diary began in the 1990's from my studio in the North of England. After a lapse of ten years, I resumed posting from my present studio on the Caribbean island of Dominica.
From the far beginning, the intention has been to give an insight into my working methods, and to share the triumphs, trials and tribulations of work-in-progress.
My diary pages are followed by thousands of artists, art students and art lovers in over 50 countries.
