Just received an advance copy of the book I have been working on with Search Press over the last two years. Flowers in the Landscape is the title. It does make for quite a special moment seeing your work published for the first time, and holding the finished book in your hands. But I have to say that I know everything in the book so well now that I have to really try and imagine how it will look and read to someone seeing it for the first time. Here’s hoping it will be useful to you all. I really enjoyed doing it.

When I started out on watercolour, I read everything I could get my hands on to help me practise all the special techniques. I soon became fascinated with this medium and still enjoy the challenge every day.

I’ve been enjoying the flowers in my garden this summer and have been doing a different style of painting more reliant on drawing. I’ve had the flowers in front of me in a glass vase. I always find painting glass a enjoyable challenge. I like the more contemporary feel of the light background too. What do you think?
