Once in a while I love to produce watercolour on a big scale. I sureley could not paint any bigger than this one : 22" x 30". I have enjoyed it so much.

The flowers are soft and fragile. Watercolour is the best medium to paint them.

DEREK JARMAN'S COTTAGE

Derek Jarman was a famous artist :http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Derek_Jarman
He lived in Dungeness, near my home town of Hythe in Kent.
I have created many watercolours of this corner at :http://www.dungeness.beatricecloake.co.uk/

I have created one more : The cottage that he transformed. He created a wonderful garden with plants that could only live in this wild place by the sea. It is beautifully kept and receives many visitors :

INTERTWINED

  • I was given this bouquet of irises and daffodils, I could not resist painting them. It has been a great challenge and I nearly gave up. The pot and the plate are from Quimper in France.
