Watercolours

 

 

Flow and rhythm in the natural world.

 

 

Exploring techniques for layering water and pigments

to represent the organic elements of water, vegetation and sky.  

 

Searching for the soft rounded shapes and blended

colours present in natural forms in varying weather conditions,

times of the day and seasons.

 

"There is a multiplicity of individual representations of reality

which differ according to different frames of reference, values,

fantasies, anxieties and desires."

 

(Angela Carter, The Rational Glass)

"She was born with winter already in her bones, but then came the sharp promise of spring, the fattening of the buds, the indolent heat of summer, the mould and mushroom of autumn."
