I generally paint in a very wet in wet style. I mix all my colours from a limited pallet of around 15 predominantly transparent colours and love seeing the mixed colours separate slightly as I paint with multiple glazes. I like to paint across a broad range of subject matter using my camera to filter what I see as I walk on the local beaches and lakes or travel around Australia. Paintings with water reflections and birdlife are frequent themes. I am also fascinated by body language and often paint scenes with people about their daily lives. In addition to pure watercolour, I enjoy pen & wash sketching when travelling, as a preamble to painting, and often just for fun.
