A selection of landscape watercolours of Galloway.
These paintings are not watercolours in a traditional sense, or any time honoured purist technique.
Watercolour is at its finest worked fast. A number of factors work against this ideal. It's reputation as a difficult medium is not without foundation. Most problems occur when the paint is drying or adjusting colour balance. Making corrections when the pigment has dried is virtually impossible.
I have changed all that.

"Moonlight themes have become an identifying mark of my paintings over the years. The landscape Moonlit Dunes is in my opinion a work that reflects all the elements of mood and quality in watercolour that I endevour to achieve. I consider this work to be one of my all time favourite paintings."
