Watercolours and
waterbased media

Original paintings inspired by the Exe estuary in my home village of Lympstone. Observations are from both the shoreline looking out, and from the water looking back.  Kayaking and daily swims help inform creative ideas.  

I work in two main styles and media;

  • mixed watercolour- based paints (gouache, ink and gesso) on stretched Kraft paper

  • watercolour paints on white heavyweight paper 

they are shown in that order here​

Some of these are available as giclee prints
