Some subject seem ideal for a particular medium – like watercolour flowers. The way the pigments float across the paper lends itself to conveying the softness of petals and the subtle curves of leaf and stem.
This week, as I walked to meetings in London, I particularly notices windowbox after windowbox of glorious pink cyclamen. They had so many blooms they stood out in splashes of colour threaded through the streets of the city. And their blossoms looked like crowds of bright little ballerinas. I really wanted to capture their dancing feel on paper.
