I am excited to present my first book, written to guide you through playful painting techniques using unusual materials such as teas and alcohols to combine with inks and graphite on watercolour paper. The book details several workshop experiments from floral still life to portrait studies and looks at ways to loosen up your painting and have fun with the effects of using different materials.
