My medium of choice is watercolour, sometimes adding add a little ink, or I paint using pastels.
I love the challenge and often, the unpredictability of watercolour, sometimes being frustrated with the result but then liking it better on looking at it some weeks later.
I was inspired by the heat of the day and the strong sunlight throwing the pickers faces into shadow.
I thoroughly enjoyed wandering off down all the fascinating little cobbled streets in Tuscany.

I love the happy laughter of these birds, frequent visitors to our garden.
Out walking my dog one day, I rounded a bend in the track and was in awe at the brilliance of snow on the distant mountains.
I am unable to paint simply because I have the time – I need to be moved by something that has inspired me, such as a stormy sky or brilliant sunlight casting deep shadow.
