An enjoyable quick little thing, December 14th, 2018.
I find it isn’t a creative but more a reproductive process that requires precision and concentration. As such, it makes for great relaxation. Once I finish the base pattern construction, I enjoy making my own additions by highlighting hidden patterns, removing some outlines to add a swirling motion or by adding a border.
All in watercolour on paper, between 150 x 150 mm and 250 x 250 mm.

One of my earliest works, clearly influenced by a Frida Kahlo biography which I read at the time. Don Giovanni is our (then) cat, who only dreamed of mice but never caught one.
The waterscape is in reference to the Day Skipper sailing course, which I completed at the same time in rough weather in the Solent.
