Textures and Patterns

I love textures and patterns! They take my mind on a journey of relaxation. Whether it is the diamond rippling reflections trees on the water or the dimpled rough watercolour paper I use to encourage the paint pigment to nestle in I find them fascinating. They may influence a painting in it’s own right, or I may draw on the ideas they inspire to add areas of interest to another subject. Some, like the delicate Lichen or Moss feel like tiny worlds to explore. 

When you are out and about, look more closely at the seemingly ordinary and you will awaken your senses to wonder.
