Some of my recent wildlife watercolour and acrylic paintings. I like to think that my art improves with every painting; I rarely upload paintings I think are not up to the standard of work I'd like.
As you can see, until recently I used gouache quite a bit in my work- I have since attempted to paint, for the most part, primarily in watercolour. Planning prior to starting a painting is essential in order to preserve the white of the paper, rather than heightening later with white gouache.
Most of the work below is for sale. Feel free to contact me for details.
