Water margin


Recently my kids Hannah and Jack and I built a pond in the back garden so I guess I have been inspired to portray some aquatic life but in a way that stretches me artistically. And what better painting medium to portray water than watercolour? (Well, plus a touch of gouache too for the reflections). Nice and impressionistic, this was painted on Langton smooth, 300gsm paper.

    Hanna & Jack will remember this forever!
    A nice retreat to go and ponder, stire the senses and enjoy.
    Very cool Peter! Your painting and story has me imagining too!
