Today I enjoyed showing visitors to Cam Valley Arts Trail a small sample of how I go about constructing an image from wet-in-wet watercolours and my imagination. The hardest thing was choosing the colour scheme as I went along. You may have noticed that I have a mount offered up to the painting. This is a useful tip to help me identify the final shape of the painting around the focal point and it also helped me pare back the colours.
Get ready for Christmas with this “chilled” watercolour session. Catherine will share her own source photo and help you to create a frosty and atmospheric scene using her wet-in-wet “gravity painting” techniques. Mince pies and coffee supplied!
I am excited to have four beautiful new designs ready for a series of winter watercolour workshops on Zoom. Based around Catherine’s own images, the workshops will take place on the middle Wednesday of each month. Each workshop includes step-by-step demos and Q & A with Catherine, plus source photo, Zoom link and materials list supplied by email in advance.

I am happy to have my watercolour Dusk at Catherine Hill showing at the Victoria Art Gallery in Bath with the annual Bath Society of Artists’ Exhibition. This vibrant, mixed exhibition continues until 20 November 2021.
So lovely to celebrate the opening of our 2021 exhibition with Kate’s gorgeous portrait (below). I have a family portrait of my sons hanging in the virtual exhibition. See all the fabulous works at https://onlinegalleryswa160.oess1.uk/ until the end of the year.
