Watercolour texture effects...



I always used to love painting with watercolours, the way the rich colours run into each other making colour combinations I could never quite replicate...I think this is why I really enjoy making my watercolour textures, being able to combine my photographs with the textures to get a feeling of a painting...it's funny how our paths in life often follow patterns and I see now that I've come full circle, combining all that I've learnt over the last 30 years in my artwork and experimenting that I'm doing now...combining the art with the photography in ways that I never would have imagined possible back then!
