watercolour paintings are a direct result of a complex and unique technique
developed through experimentation and evolved over many years. Within the
overall size of the paper, I thoroughly wet a rectangle varying in size, from 6
in x 8 in to 20 in x 24 in, leaving an outer border dry. Immediately, colours
are introduced in layers using a succession of six to twelve generous and
carefully controlled washes, simultaneously 'lifting off' excess water and
specific areas of colour. No conventional brushwork is involved. The process is
designed to trap the spontaneity of light.
