My pictures are bright and colourful. I have support to draw the shape and then I lay the colours down in watercolour, using tissue to dab off too much water and paint. I do this repeatedly until its just right. My canal boat painting was trying a new technique where I was helped to trace off a photograph which was then photocopied onto watercolour paper. I then coloured it in with watercolour paint and dabbing it off until colours were strong enough. It reminds me of my canal boat holidays.
