Here is a sum-up of my latest Fruits and Vegs illustrations.

***********************************

Watercolours on various papers: white 220 gsm, 18th century manuscript paper, 1960's typewritten paper, newspaper... All offer different qualities and effects; my favourite is the 1960's typewritten one (just thick enough to take the paint, but not as absorbant as the manuscript).                                                                                                       I use the watercolours the traditional way, with a little twist towards the end: light washes first, stronger colours in more opaque layers gradually building up; then I add highlights of white and pure colours, to bring some vibrance. I use paint in tubes: the colours are more concentrated, and allow me to play with their texture.
