Watercolour Sketches and Studies.

Watercolour Sketches and Studies.

As we get close to Christmas, I always get the urge to have a sort out in my studio, maybe it’s the anticipation of the Winter Solstice that means the days will start drawing out again and the daylight will start to get some strength and life to it again. Which in turn always fuels me up with inspiration to get out and start painting the change as Winter slowly begins to lose it’s grip.

So , here are a few watercolour sketches and studies that I would like to offer to you. They are all unframed and unmounted , but come bubble wrapped and boxed up for safe postage.

All prices include UK Delivery with Royal Mail First Class Post, so anything bought this week will get to you before Christmas.

Have a great day!
