Paintings and Journals of a watercolor artist.
I must have painted the picture above over 30 or 40 times until it worked. I wasn't sure it would work.
I intended to do 100 paintings of urban scenes but I only did about 30.
I focused a lot on rickshaws during this year. They are so difficult to paint.
First trip back home to England after years in Japan. And first real holiday. Went to Wales.
I did a series on this beautiful Japanese river in Kumamoto.
Painted Nyudogumo - maybe it's called a thunderhead. This was probably my best painting of the year.
I got stuck all night on a mountain.
Dazzling light on a forest path.
Beautiful green rice fields near Inukai - from a long cycling trip.
