I enjoy all aspects of working with watercolour. I particularly like the fluidity & unpredictability of the medium. There are so many approaches one can take; a quick colour notation can be added to a sketch as an aide memoire, or more considered studies can be made, exploring colour, atmosphere, time & place.
Where possible I like to work in situ; whether it be painting outdoors in an interesting setting or working from a model, either on a portrait or a life study. I also work from references that allow me time to move away from mere representation by tentatively exploring mood & abstraction.
