Some recent watercolours and sketches: trying to be minimal with the watercolour. Only two layers at most otherwise it looks overdone. Keeping lots of white space, pencil marks. 

Starting some new acrylic paintings of the local Welsh landscape. Perhaps also some memories of the striking colours of Sardinia. Again, as with the watercolours, aiming for simplicity: limited palette; keeping it fresh; leaving some of the white canvas. Some writing perhaps, and more collage, if it seems right.
