My favourite medium is watercolour however I also use acrylics, pastels and most recently watercolour and collage. I like watercolour because of its subtlety for my landscapes. I have a real love of painting outdoors in all seasons and many of my small landscape paintings are produced outside, directly on site. I enjoy painting in and around Salisbury. For my bird paintings I make many sketches from life and combine these with photos to create paintings. I paint birds in watercolour but I also enjoy using acrylics and pastels because of the strength of colour and immediacy it lends to the subject.
