These really beautiful watercolour paintings have caught my eye recently. My mum is an artist and watercolour is the medium she used most often while I was growing up. I remember playing with her paints, spending hours making a mess. Aren’t the colours and details amazing? They’re so versatile.
- Jessica Durrant mixes watercolours and ink to create these amazing skyline pieces. I love the flicks and splashes.
- Amber Alexander paints mostly animals and woodland creatures, the characters and expressions are amazing.
- Amy Borrell‘s shop, cake with giants, is full of really subtle, sweet, illustrations and prints. She also illustrated some fantastic journals for Frankie Magazine - I want!
- I can’t quite believe the depth of colour in Stina Persson‘s paintings. They’re so vibrant; I had a hard time picking just one to use here!
