Sunday Supplement: Back to Nature

I confess these watercolour paintings were not done en plein air but the images are taken from

  2. Thank you for such a kind comment, juls. When I paint straight from nature it's better in a way but I find it so difficult getting it all in on the page! The outdoors isn't really my metier but I am encouraged to try harder now.

  3. these are so lovely.the boat in foreground is my favorite. G

  4. These are so quiet and beautiful. And a bit mysterious too.
