Trees are on my list of favourite subjects to paint as some of you know. This is an unusual grouping of colours bordering on warm undertones. There is a slight acidic feel to the greens. But overall, it creates its own magical atmosphere. I used quite a bit of gouache alongside watercolours in this painting.
I was born in SA during the seventies and enjoyed a colourful childhood. I have always been passionate about painting and drawing and found plenty of stimulating subjects around me. After studying Graphic Design in Durban I worked as a Graphic Artist for various agencies in SA. I finally moved over to the UK in 1997 and have enjoyed many adventures since. My career has been an exciting, versatile one so far and I teach many enthusiastic adults how to paint and draw, as well as demonstrating for art groups in Surrey. I still love to paint outdoors and in my studio. I look forward to many more exciting and rewarding artistic challenges.
