Member of Online watercolour courses, Billy Showell, Rebecca Rhodes
Self taught initially and then attended three day courses with various esteemed watercolour artists
My identical twin sister encouraged me to pick up the paint brush when I was diagnosed, very unexpectedly, with a serious cardiac illness. I had been a very active person up to then, owning and caring for my beloved horses and gardening with a passion! Thank goodness for watercolour which I enjoy enormously and find it keeps me busy and content. I am drawn to the animal and plant kingdom which I paint in a realist style. My work is created using professional quality watercolour which I find works well when depicting the natural subjects of my painting. I paint from life and photographs, my botanical material tends to fade and wilt before I have finished the piece! I like to depict my subjects on a. monochrome background so that the subject, be it animal or vegetable is not detracted from in any way. I am available for commissions, enquiries welcome!
