A new calendar for 2011

This calendar is unique, created with my florals and can be purchased on Redbubble.

RedBubble calendars are printed using marvellous futuristic technologies, so complex we can't go into them here, but we can tell you they are lovingly printed on a luscious 200gsm satin art paper at the striking size of A3 (that’s 297x420mm, or 11.69x16.54").



They also have very handy wire binding so you can hang them from things like 'hooks' on exciting places like 'walls'.


You can select your own start month, and order right into the future. Everything about them is brilliant.

Holbein watercolour artist paint

For years I have been working with Winsor and Newton artist watercolour.

I am working on floral and I had read that botanical artists preferred Holbein paint and so I am trying some of them.

I am thrilled. They are fine, transparent and the colours are so vibrant. A definite favourite for flower painting.

Watercolour paper

To stretch or not to stretch ?

I love the fact that when stretching my paper, I feel pretty confident that it will not buckle. However I feel that my paper behaves like blotting paper.

I will revert to Not stretching, I am using Arches 140lbs or Saunders Waterford 140lbs or more.

Polperro

My latest

ON THE EDGE OF THE CLIFF
